Keir Starmer warns that current lockdown rules may need to be made TOUGHER

Sir Keir Starmer warned that lockdown rules may need to be made tougher if they do not arrest a surge in Covid cases - as he demanded nurseries be shut down immediately. 

The Labour leader attacked 'mixed messages' from ministers over the lockdown restrictions as he urged Boris Johnson to front daily press conferences until the lockdown is lifted.

The UK's Covid death toll passed 80,000, after a further 1,035 deaths were recorded yesterday, increasing fears that the total will surpass 100,000 by the end of the month.

'I would like to see the Prime Minister out there every day with a press conference making sure that message is absolutely getting through.'
