PEOPLE in Bury are being told to 'minimise' travel in and out of the town, under new guidance just published.

The Greater Manchester has been issued with additional guidance to contain the Indian variant, which is spreading fast throughout the region.

The advice published today is the same as that issued to Bolton and caused confusion and worry about travel plans.

Now people in Bury are being told to "particular caution" when outside the home and outside their bubbled.

They should:

meet outside rather than inside where possible

keep 2 metres apart from people that you don’t live with (unless you have formed a support bubble with them), this includes friends and family you don’t live with minimise travel in and out of affected areas

The guidance is just advisory and people cannot be fined
