Has lockdown amplified mental health?

Mental health charity SANE has warned that the coronavirus lockdown is storing up a mental health epidemic in the UK.

The charity has seen a sharp increase in calls about domestic abuse and says people with serious concerns are not seeking help because they don’t want to bother an overstretched National Health Service.

Sky’s home editor Jason Farrell reports on the efforts to protect the vulnerable.
