LONDON, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Britain's government on Friday
ordered a ban on gatherings of households in the northern
English town of Preston in its latest localised clampdown to try
to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

"At the request of the local authority, Preston will be now
be added to the list of areas included in the ban on households
gathering in each other’s homes and gardens, effective from
midnight tonight," the health ministry said.

"Guidance will make clear that people should not be
gathering with other households anywhere indoors."

Rules limiting gatherings in parts of England's north west,
West Yorkshire and Leicester would remain in place, the ministry
said.
