Former Supreme Court judge Lord Jonathan Sumption has criticised the government's approach to the coronavirus pandemic, saying it has employed fear as a means to justify its actions.

Speaking with talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer, he warned that Downing Street could hold on to its emergency powers after there is no need for them: "The problem is that fear is the main pillar of every authoritarian government.  Fear has been skilfully and I fear deliberately employed throughout this crisis."
