Kenilworth is one of the 57 locations across the country where the new strain of coronavirus has been detected.
This information has been announced by the Covid-19 Genomics UK Consortium, which has been monitoring the spread.
Local authorities across the country have been told to assume that the new variant of the virus could now be in every area of the country and the list of 57 could soon expand as more data is released.
Scientists are keen to reassure people that the variant is not thought to be more harmful but it is believed to be 70 per cent more transmittable.
This has led to a spike of cases in London and the South East of England - and today (Wednesday) the Government is expected to announce that more areas will move into the new tier 4 restrictions after Christmas.
We will bring you more on this announcement as we get it.
