Plea from Council Leader: Don't mix with other households

Burnley Council leader Mark Townsend has urged local residents not to mix with anyone outside their household or social "bubble" unless absolutely necessary as infection rates in the borough soar dramatically above the national average.
 
"We have to do something now before it's too late," warned Councillor Townsend.
 
Burnley is well into the "red zone" in terms of the numbers of positive cases of Covid-19 and the figures are rising. Cases are increasing in every part of the borough.
 

New leader elected

Councillor Mark Townsend has been elected as the new leader of Burnley Council.

The move follows the resignation of the previous leader, Councillor Charlie Briggs, who led a coalition administration.

Labour now takes control of the council, as the largest group. Its 22 seats falls one short of an overall majority on the 45-seat authority.
