“The health secretary is meeting with local leaders from Leicester to discuss the situation this afternoon,” the spokesman said, adding the meeting would take place at 13h30 on Monday

Johnson has said the key to preventing a second wave of the novel coronavirus is for the government to pursue local lockdowns, targeting new outbreaks to contain any spread.
