Liverpool City Region received a £44 million package as part of its Tier 3 measures, but Greater Manchester wants more extensive support - including a furlough scheme paying 80% of wages for affected workers.

Mr Burnham said whether a deal can be reached is "not about the size of the cheque".

Yesterday afternoon, Mr Burnham held a "constructive" call with Sir Edward Lister, the Prime Minister's chief strategic adviser.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer says the collapse in talks were a "sign of Government failure".

In a joint statement with Leese, Burnham also complained that a previous offer of financial support had been withdrawn by ministers.

Up to 1,809 pubs in Greater Manchester could be forced to close following the Government's decision to impose Tier 3 restrictions on the area, according to new data.

He wrote: "Establishing clear national entitlements of the kind we had during the first lockdown will create a sense of fairness which in turn would help build public support any new restrictions".

In the top tier, pubs have to close and people are barred from mixing with members of other households. "We want to work out something together".

On Friday, Mr Johnson said that he understood the mayor's reluctance to go into the "very high" tier but said the situation was "grave" and "worsens with each passing day".

The PM warned: "Cases doubled in the last nine days. High infection rates are creeping up the age range - while cases are 690 per 100,000 for 16-29 year-olds, they have now risen to 224 per 100,000 for the over-60s".

Mr Jenrick, however, said that after 10 days of negotiations failed to reach an agreement, the deteriorating situation in the region meant the Government had no choice but to act.

Before the fun stopped.

Andy Burnham in Manchester last week.

Local leaders had gone into the call hopeful that an agreement could be reached around financial support for Greater Manchester, with the Treasury and local officials discussing the amount of cash that could be on offer, put at potentially £15m a month, she said.

Mr Burnham will be under renewed pressure to accept a lockdown after the Guardian reported a leaked NHS document revealed Greater Manchester is set to run out of beds to treat those seriously ill with Covid-19 and that some of the region's 12 hospitals are already full.

"This evening we have written to the Prime Minister reiterating our willingness to continue to work towards an agreement but reminding him that Greater Manchester has been in Tier 2 style restrictions for nearly three months, and that this has taken a toll on people and businesses here", they said. "I am not in a position to confirm how that has been resolved".

"We do now need to draw these conversations to a conclusion and to take decisive action, " Mr Jenrick told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

The health secretary said talks over introducing the toughest level of restrictions were ongoing with council leaders in Nottinghamshire, south and west Yorkshire and the north-east of England, including Teesside.

But pressed on whether the measure could be taken in the future, he said it was not merited "at the moment".
