From Sunday Morning, 7:31 am on 18 October 2020

Boris Johnson is poised to force Greater Manchester into accepting tougher Covid restrictions without providing extra money to protect businesses, while claiming that every day of delay would mean "more people will die". This has been met with massive resistance from Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham and others in the north who claim they are sick of being pushed around. UK correspondent Olly Barratt joins the show with all the latest.
