Sky News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: Young people share their lockdown experiences” – below is their description.

One group that’s experienced big changes to their lives over the last year are young people.

Hit hard by the closure of hospitality venues, as a source of work as well as entertainment, and the unprecedented restrictions on face-to-face teaching in schools and universities.

Plus all that followed from that, in terms of social isolation and effects on mental health.

A panel of young people discuss their experiences and reflections of lockdown.

Jospehine Helen who’s 25 and is an actor and singer and has  launched her own business during the pandemic.

Johnny Jenkins who’s 20 and is a third year student at Warwick University.

And Mollie Mardel who is sixteen and is at school in year 11.
