The lowest rates belong to the most remote parts of the country, including the Orkney Islands, the Shetland Islands.

The Isle of Wight and Cornwall, which will both move into tier-one when the second national lockdown ends, also have lower rates than Bracknell Forest at 39.5 and 44.9 per 100,000 people over the past seven days respectively.

Over the whole pandemic, Bracknell Forest slips to 32nd for lowest coronavirus infection rate.

This is still one of the lowest rates across England, however.
