Tom Elliott has long been concerned about the health impacts of lockdown that don’t relate to the coronavirus.

Professor Nathan Grills said it was only logical mental health issues came to the fore when people were locked at home.

“It doesn’t surprise us,” he said.

“It’s obviously a very stressful time in the community.”
