Some of Saturday’s papers lead with growing tensions between Westminster and regional governments over coronavirus restrictions. The Guardian says Boris Johnson has attempted to “strongarm” leaders in Greater Manchester into accepting restrictions without providing additional money to businesses. It comes after the PM held a Downing Street press conference during which he reiterated his threat to impose tier three lockdown – the highest one – if an agreement cannot be reached soon. Mr Johnson has dismissed suggestions of a national “circuit break” – apparently at odds with his chief scientific adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance.
