BORIS Johnson has been handed "proof" local lockdowns aren't working in a fiery clash in the Commons.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer branded the fact 19 local areas have had to follow tough local lockdown rules for two months and their infections were still rising "ridiculous".

Sir Keir stormed this lunchtime: "Today is 100 days since the first local restrictions were brought in.

"20 local areas have been under restrictions for two months, in 19 of those infection rates have gone up.

"It's obvious something has gone wrong here."

Labour handed out stats on the areas which had been forced to follow stricter rules than the rest of the nation, with some of them have a shocking 3653 per cent rise in infection rates since tough restrictions were brought in.

According to the document, Wigan, which was given lockdown restrictions on July 30, had a rate of 6 cases for 100,000 people which has now skyrocketed to 219 cases per 100,000.

In Rossendale, the rate on July 30 was 10 cases per 100,000, which has now risen to 220 per 100,000.

But the PM hit back at Sir Keir for questioning local lockdowns, when he hadn't thrown his support behind the national rule of six, designed to curb infections.
