A MAP of coronavirus cases across the UK has revealed which areas of Romsey and its surroundings have some of the highest rates of infection.

The Government map breaks down COVID-19 rates into smaller geographic areas, including nations and counties.

At a lower level, it breaks them into Middle Layer Super Output Areas, or MSOAs, which are smaller, postcode-linked areas that are used for a range of Government statistics.

Areas are colour-coded by their rate, with purples and blues being the highest, and greens and yellows the lowest.
