The decision to shut hundreds of betting shops across the Liverpool City region from Wednesday has attracted fierce criticism from the racing and betting industries, with the BHA fearing a "hugely damaging" impact on the finances of both sectors.

Prime minister Boris Johnson revealed England's new three-tier system of regional restrictions in the House of Commons on Monday, with the Liverpool City region placed in the 'very high' category, the highest level.

The closure of betting shops is not mandatory under tier three restrictions and both the BHA and Betting and Gaming Council have called for such a move to be avoided if any of the dozens of local authorities in the midlands and north of England move from tier two to tier three as coronavirus cases rise.

This could actually have big ramifications for SA racing if it lasts for longer than the possible six months (TV deals etc)

Official documents released on Monday night show the government's scientific advisory panel advised the closure of non-essential retail, which includes betting shops, would have a "very minimal impact" on the spread of Covid-19 and risks could be easily mitigated by social distancing and face coverings.

Anger over the unexpected inclusion of bookies in tier-three restrictions for Merseyside continued to mount on Tuesday as Michael Dugher, chief executive of the Betting and Gaming Council, slammed the decision to close betting shops and casinos as "pure tokenism" by the government.
