Latest: All 5 areas with highest Covid cases are in Lancashire

Blackburn with Darwen, The Ribble Valley and Hyndburn remain the areas with the most number of Covid cases in the UK.

The figures, for the seven days to June 10, are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test, by specimen date.
The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 283 (90%) have seen a rise in rates, 26 (8%) have seen a fall and six are unchanged.
