Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce a delay to the easing of lockdown restrictions in England tonight.

It is expected that coronavirus restrictions will stay in place for another four weeks after the initial 21 June ‘unlocking’ date.

Although case rates have predominantly fallen across the country, there are still some areas where coronavirus cases are rising.

The latest figures for Milton Keynes show 18 out of 33 areas saw an increase in infections in the latest seven-day period, the first week of June.

The biggest increases were in Bletchley South and Shenley Wood and Grange Farm, where the case rate shot up by 133% that week. But the highest number of cases came in Stony Stratford and Old Wolverton, followed by Westcroft and Shenley Brook End.

Other areas such as Bletchley East, Bradwell Common, Stantonbury and Bradville, and Stacey Bushes and Fullers Slade did not see a single case during the same period. Several areas saw the Covid case rate decrease over the week.

Now as the country looks set to stay with some restrictions for another month, we reveal which neighbourhoods saw the biggest rise between 01 and 8 June.

The figures relate to the case rate of each area - ie the equation of how many cases there has been, pro rata, per 100,000 of the neighbourhood's population.
