Johnson, Sunak and Whitty poised for Downing Street press conference.

It's almost time for this evening's press conference with Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Chancellor Rishi Sunak and England's chief medical officer, Prof Chris Whitty, in Downing Street.

The PM was in Parliament earlier, outlining the new three-tier alert system for local coronavirus restrictions in England, which will take effect on Wednesday.

Here are some of the key things you need to know ahead of the conference:

The new system is split into three alert levels: medium, high and very high. Most areas in England are in the medium alert level - meaning current restrictions continue, including the 10pm hospitality curfew
Areas that already have local restrictions on household mixing will automatically be placed on "high" alert
The Liverpool City Region is the only area, at the moment, to be placed in the "very high" category, with restrictions including that pubs, bars and betting shops will have to close
For those areas on "very high" alert, there will be further financial support for improved contact tracing and more funding for local enforcement, as well as the offer of help from the armed services
But the Labour mayor of Liverpool has said an argument for a stronger financial package for the city "wasn't listened to"
The PM said all retail outlets, schools and universities will remain open
