  • The prime minister said he regretted the anguish that the restrictions would cause but that he was left with no alternative.

  • Our political editor, Laura Ginsburg, has more details.

  • Yeah, that's when you come down three days until the locks returned, time for discussion.

  • But the decision isn't really in doubt.

  • Doctors and nurses could be forced to choose which patients to treat, who would live and who would die.

  • Remember, schools will stay open on other parts of the UK are following different rules.

  • This isn't exactly the same as the spring leader of the opposition Kier Starmer, but the charge of the government's been too slow is familiar that every state, the prime Mr has Bean too slow behind the curve at every stage is pushed away.

  • The lock down comes with all kinds of heavy costs, though Nicholas Inborn myth was made redundant first time around.

  • Just yesterday he started his own business, obviously going to lock down now the injured.

  • I mean, I could still continue to work on the financial advice sector, but he's gonna make it very hard.

  • But Karen, who hopes to form a bubble with her Children, is frustrated.

  • I think it's absolutely, totally not and wrong to do any lock down.

  • Polling suggests most of the public like pensioner job back the plan, however reluctantly they've got to do it.

  • We've gotta have a a break, Um, try and get things under control again.

  • But the financial pain will be acute.

  • Thousands and thousands of jobs have already gone, the government's racking up billions of borrowing, trying to keep the economy afloat, extending the Farlow scheme in England and support for the self employed.

  • But the fear among business about what's next is great.

  • Economic damage is unavoidable.

  • Gas tanks are depleted.

  • Batteries run down in so many businesses across the country, in retail, in hospitality, our aviation sector absolutely on its knees.

  • Back in parliament, the prime minister doesn't have to worry about losing the vote that will make locked down official.

  • But he hasn't won the argument on his backbenches.

  • Temporary, the government hopes.

  • Tough on everyone.

  • Ministers No on lock down comes with more political turmoil.

  • Laura Ginsburg, BBC News Westminster Let's take a look at the latest official government figures they show 136 deaths were reported in the latest 24 hour period as people who died within 28 days of a positive covert 19 test means on average.

  • In the past week, 265 deaths were announced every day, and it takes the total number of deaths so far across the UK to 46,800 on 53.

  • Now, a new five level system off restrictions has come into effect in Scotland.

  • No part of Scotland has been placed in the highest here, but the central belt, including Glasgow and Edinburgh, will be in level three off the new system, with pubs and restaurants, closing at six PM on no alcohol sold.

  • The Highlands and many of the island communities will be in Tier one, with more relaxed rules are Scotland editor Sarah Smith has more details.

  • The walk is hot For the first time in weeks, this closed door restaurant reopened today as even under Level three restrictions.

  • They can serve food before six, but no alcohol.

  • On balance, I think I'd rather be open and closed.

  • We make most of the revenue in the evenings and a significant proportion of it from drink sales.

  • So to be open to a six PM with no drink sales as they were gonna be a struggle, they probably won't turn a profit.

  • But want to try to save jobs, unsure exactly what support Scottish businesses will get from the government in future as the furlough schemes now being extended through November across the whole of the UK The big question here is what happens if Scotland goes into a tighter locked down at a later date?

  • Will the chancellor pay for Scottish workers to be followed then?

  • Nicolas Sturgeon says funds must be available at the time when they're needed.

  • That can't be right that the only time the additional financial support is made available is when the south of England needs to go into, ah, lock down.

  • That just doesn't fear.

  • Then, Taking many by surprise, the Scottish Tory leader later secured a promise from the prime minister that furlough funds will be available if Scotland needs them.

  • If, uh, if other parts of the UK decide to go into, uh into measures which require the fellas can, then of course it's available to them that that has to be right on day.

  • That applies not just now, but of course, in the future.

  • A swell In Paisley volunteers are trying to spread a little happiness.

  • Somebody up face.

  • It's bean over six weeks, since people could visit each other's homes in Scotland.

  • Instead, house plants are being delivered to the elderly who fear another lock down with it.

  • Different rules for different countries, but the leaders of all four UK nations say they will work together to try and find a joint approach to Christmas.

  • Sarah Smith BBC News Blasco, the Northwest Ambulance Service in England, has declared a major incident because of the high level of calls this received especially in the Greater Manchester area.

  • It's warned that people might need to make their own weight hospital if their condition isn't life threatening or to dial 111 for medical advice.
