Coronavirus case rates are falling more slowly across Red Wall seats than the country as a whole, research reveals.

Figures on changes in seven-day average infection rates between January 7 and January 28 show cases dropped by 33.8% across the seats compared with an average 49.8% nationally.

On average, infections fell by 39.9% in the 20 most deprived areas of England compared with the wealthiest, where levels dropped by 57.2%.
