Official figures have revealed that London is now seeing more than 1,000 coronavirus cases every day, hitting boroughs across the capital.

In the week to 2 October infection rates across 16 areas are now showing over 60 new cases per 100,000 population.

The spread of coronavirus is no longer just hitting East London and more testing has found more people with the virus.

Boroughs which previously had low or medium infection rates are now seeing the virus spreading.

In the seven days to 2 October, Redbridge had the highest cases in the capital with 286 at a rate of 93.7, and Richmond Upon Thames had 171 new cases at a rate of 86.4, which is the second worst area in London.

The City of London and Hackney are both the third hardest hit areas with 246 more cases at a rate of 84.6, the latter seeing far more cases.
