These are areas of Preston with the highest and lowest Covid rates ahead of this week's lockdown review

A review is set for Wednesday, December 16, with any changes to Tiers for any area set to be announced before being put in place from Saturday, December 19.

Ahead of the review we've looked at the latest figures from Public Health England, which show the the case rate for neighbourhoods in Preston for the seven days to December 9, 2020.

Seven–day rates are expressed per 100,000 population and are calculated by dividing the seven day count by the area population and multiplying by 100,000.
