As Boris Johnson took to the Downing Street podium on Saturday afternoon, his imminent announcement was a game changer for millions of people across the country. With the virus spreading more rapidly in parts of the country, driven by a new variant, new tier 4 restrictions (applicable from midnight on Saturday) were introduced in London and large parts of the east and south-east of England, impacting around 18 million people, who were told to stay at home and not to mix with other households indoors.
