Labour accuses Johnson of being too slow to respond to Leicester Covid outbreak

Home Affairs Correspondent

Public Health England has published its report which led to Leicester becoming the first city in Britain to face a new lockdown.

The city only started going back into lockdown yesterday and today Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer accused the Prime Minister of presiding over what he said was a “lost week”.

The Prime Minister insisted that action had been taken swiftly and defended the sharing of testing figures with local officials.
