There were no deaths recorded in Dacorum and the total number of positive tests in the borough is now 1,837 after 20 cases were recorded in 24 hours, according to the latest figures from Public Health England.

There have been 251 new cases today in Hertfordshire. The total is now 16,178.

Public Health England changed the way it records the location of people who have been tested for Covid-19 - counts of cases and deaths at sub-national level have been updated to reflect this.

The address given at the point of testing will now be used to determine a person's area of residence, rather than that on their electronic NHS record, with the change retrospectively applied to tests carried out from September 1.

Although there were no deaths in Dacorum - the total is still 108 - there were three new deaths across Hertfordshire, and the total is now 956.

There were 206 Covid-linked deaths in the UK today, bringing the total since the start of the pandemic to 55,230.

There were 15,450 new cases, bringing the total to 1,527,495.
