As Lancashire prepares to return to the highest level of restrictions in England, we take a look at the latest Public Health England (PHE) data which shows the areas in Preston, Chorley and South Ribble where cases are still rising.
The PHE figures show which neighbourhoods saw an increase in cases for the seven days to November 21, 2020.
Seven–day rates are expressed per 100,000 population and are calculated by dividing the seven day count by the area population and multiplying by 100,000.
