Sir Keir’s approval rate also dropped from 46% to 43%, according to the survey.

“An overwhelming majority expect a second wave of coronavirus to hit the UK, and a smaller majority expect a new lock-up to be necessary before a vaccine finally frees us from it virus. “

Four people were arrested and several pubs decided to close after alcohol-related antisocial behavior in north Nottinghamshire.

Nottinghamshire police said three pubs in Mansfield and Sutton in Ashfield, plus two in Arnold and Newark closed.

Inspector Craig Berry said, “Officers quickly arrived at the scene to deal with a number of reports of alcohol-related antisocial behavior, including broken glass and minor assaults. As a result, four arrests were made by officers and we supported licensees who chose to close their own premises.

“No pub was closed by the police.

“We would like to thank the majority of the public who acted responsibly throughout Saturday, in particular by watching the highly anticipated Derby vs Forest match. “

Meanwhile, the city of Leicester remains mostly closed amidst its own local lockdown.

The city’s restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs should remain closed, but may be open for takeout.

People are also forbidden to stay overnight in another household, and those in the restricted area can no longer visit people in private gardens or indoors, and could be fined if they do not follow the rules.

The city of East Midlands has been subject to tougher restrictions by Health Secretary Matt Hancock following the rapid increase in cases of coronavirus.

In addition to the city of Leicester, the lockdown area includes parts of Leicestershire which border the city limits, including parts of the district of Blaby and Charnwood in the county.
