01:07 - The UK goes to a new national lockdown as cases surge

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on 4th January ordered England into a new national lockdown to contain a surge in coronavirus cases that threatens to overwhelm parts of the health system before a vaccine programme reaches a critical mass.

The announcement came just hours after the government hailed Britain's success in becoming the first country to begin rolling out the vaccine developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said a new, more contagious variant of the coronavirus first identified in the United Kingdom and now present in many other countries was spreading at great speed and immediate action was needed to slow it down.

The lockdown went into effect as of midnight on 5 January 2021 and is expected to last until the middle of February.

Scotland also announced a lockdown starting at midnight on Monday until the end of January.

Wales, which has been in a national lockdown since 20th December, said schools and colleges would shut until 18 January for most pupils.

Northern Ireland, which entered a six-week lockdown on 26th December, plans to put its stay-at-home message into law for the rest of January and probably into February.
