These are the latest Covid infection rates for each area of Lancashire

The figures, for the seven days to April 25, are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test, by specimen date.

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Data for the most recent four days (April 26-29) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

The five areas with the biggest week-on-week rises are:

Selby (up from 56.3 to 107.0)

Hyndburn (28.4 to 70.3)
