  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Keir Starmer calls for ‘circuit breaker’ lockdown for England” – below is their description.

    Keir Starmer called for a two- to three-week national ‘circuit breaker’ lockdown across England to prevent the NHS being overwhelmed, urging Boris Johnson to act in a dramatic escalation of his criticism of the government’s approach. Starmer pushed the PM to heed the advice of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) after it was revealed late on Monday that the government’s scientific advisers called for a fortnight-long lockdown as long ago as 21 September, warning that a failure to do so risked a ‘very large epidemic with catastrophic consequences’
