Coronavirus infection rates in Charnwood and Oadby and Wigston are now higher than in Leicester, according to latest figures.

The city, which had the highest rate of Covid-19 cases in England for many weeks in the summer, now has the 66th worst rate, as the second wave of the virus drives up infections elsewhere.

The Press Association (PA) has produced its latest table of rates in the seven days up to October 10, which shows Leicester had 165.4 new infections per 100,000 people.

It has been leapfrogged by Charnwood with a rate of 209.8 cases per 100,000 people and Oadby and Wigston with a rate of 208.7.

They sit 55th and 56th respectively.
