Turning back to the ONS infection survey, here are the figures from the data tables showing the estimate for what percentage of the population in England would have tested positive on 14 July by region.
North-east: 1 in 45
Experts and charities have raised the alarm about rising youth violence in the UK and say it could erupt over the summer, aggravated by Covid lockdowns, mental health problems and months out of education, my colleague Jessica Murray reports.
Trucks, diggers and volunteers try to clear mud and ruined belongings from wrecked homes and businesses
A brown line one and a half metres high on the kitchen wall marks where the waters reached when Christian Ulrich’s house was inundated. The electrician stands amid the mud-splattered walls and his voice breaks as he recalls how he had barely enough time after the warning came to reach the cellar to get food and water and send his mother up the stairs. He had just managed to let in the neighbours who had banged on the door for help, when there was an “almighty crash – like an explosion” as a huge wave of water rolled in from the back and front of the house, so strong it pushed out the front door and many of the windows.

Britain’s recovery from its winter lockdown has slowed sharply as businesses struggle with weakening consumer demand and Covid-related shortages of materials and workers, the latest snapshot of the economy has found.
The closely watched update from IHS Markit and the Cips reported growth at its slowest since March amid wide-ranging staff shortages against a backdrop of rising Covid cases and as thousands of workers isolate owing to the so-called “pingdemic”. The survey also highlighted a new mood of caution among the public triggered by the rapidly rising infection rates.

As the Commons enters recess, the PM has simply kicked huge issues – the ‘pingdemic’, ‘levelling up’ – down the road
On the last day of term in parliament, there’s a bad tradition of governments sneaking out a host of unwelcome reports and decisions they hope to hide amid the great Westminster summer escape. Not this time. Instead, in a week of fiasco for the government, all we can hear is the ear-splitting clatter of huge cans being kicked down the road. Recess comes with everything Boris Johnson should have done left undone. The prime minister’s fatal indecision is final.
Newspaper front pages shout about shelves left unfilled by pinged workers, while a million pinged children in England miss their last week of school, and many sectors fear being overwhelmed by pings. This week’s promised list of crucial workers to be exempt from Covid test-and-trace isolation finally emerged last night, covering a number of industries including emergency services, local government, food and medical supplies. As every sector howled for help, yet another hapless minister – Kwasi Kwarteng on Thursday’s BBC Breakfast – was sent over the top to say nothing at all: yes there would be a list, only “quite narrow”, but no, it wasn’t ready right now. Why on earth did it take so long?

Hotel food is always blah, isn’t it? Or so I thought, until now …
A fun game to play with the metropolitan elite, or indeed anyone south of Watford, is to ask them to locate Hexham on a map. Or Northumberland, for that matter. Many patches of the north, with the rural north-east being a particularly good example, feel like the Bermuda Triangle to southerners: mysterious, loosely defined and quite feasibly patrolled by monsters. To me, however, Hexham was subject of many a “nice drive out” from Carlisle in the 1980s, bumbling along B-roads towards this sedate market town with a grade I-listed abbey dating from AD674, several art galleries, plenty of places to eat stottie cake and a chance to learn about the Vindolanda fort on Hadrian’s Wall.
As a child, I did not appreciate Hexham’s beauty, and longed instead to be taken to the Gateshead MetroCentre to eat at Spud-U-Like and peruse Athena for sepia posters of hunks shifting tyres. But recently I returned and stayed at The Beaumont hotel and ate in its very fine restaurant. If I’m very honest, not a single local will thank me for alerting you to this chic, recently renovated, 33-room, townhouse-style hotel with a bar that will serve you a decent apricot bellini or a cold bottle of petit chablis to enjoy on tables close to the abbey’s grounds, because, until now, The Beaumont has been largely Hexham’s secret.
Perhaps I liked my Saturday night alone in Hexham so much because The Beaumont still retains an air of chipper, diligent, business-as-usual hospitality. It’s a mood that so many larger outfits have given up on right now, due to staff shortages, to can’t-be-arsedness and especially to irrational new post-Covid company policies that seem to be nothing more than budget-slashing masquerading as “keeping you safe”.

More stores than ever are doing their bit to cut the impact of shoppers on the environment. Could reusing and refilling be the answer to plastic pollution?
Refills make sense. Not only does taking your old detergent bottles back to a store to be replenished help reduce plastic waste, but cutting out unnecessary new bottles makes it cheaper, too. In the case of a five-litre container of Ecover washing-up liquid, as much as 44% less expensive, based on RRP.
Ecover, one of the largest producers of ecological washing and cleaning products in Europe, first launched its refills at UK health food stores in the early 1990s. Now the option is available at 679 independent shops, while a trial of Ecover refill machines at four Waitrose stores in 2019 has been such a success that they have now become a permanent feature. The ongoing trial is part of the retailer’s Unpacked range, which is testing customers’ appetite for packaging-free shopping. It was the first time that Ecover had experimented with a refill system in a UK supermarket.
