Wealden MP Nus Ghani has spoken of her relief that the district remains in Tier 2.

She said: “Huge relief that Wealden continues in Tier 2 – with Christmas a one-day bubble.

It’s a sad day for those now in Tier 4 and Covid still spreading with in/out lockdown restrictions.

We need a vaccination timetable focused on the high risk and a strategy for peeling away tiers.”
