PRESSURE is growing on the Government to impose a short-term circuit-breaker lockdown in England in a bid to get rising coronavirus infections under control.

Some scientists have warned the Government's three tier local alert system does not go far enough, and only universal measures have any chance of curbing the second wave of the virus.

A circuit-breaker lockdown would see Britons sever almost all contact with people outside their own household by shutting non-essential businesses and cutting social interactions.

A circuit-breaker, if imposed, would probably last a maximum of two to three weeks.

The idea is to interrupt the flow of the virus and allow time for a longer term plan to be put in place, before cases overload the NHS.

But what are your views, would you welcome a second national lockdown?
