You can watch this week's Swarbrick On Sunday in full here, as stricter coronavirus regulations came into place nationwide.

Around a third of the nation woke up this morning to Tier 4 restrictions with the rest of the UK having heightened restrictions imposed.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Tom Swarbrick that the November lockdown was unsuccessful in stopping the spread of Covid-19, and failed to commit to a date on when restrictions would be eased.

Vice President of the European Parliament Heidi Hautala told Tom that the talk of sovereignty coming from the UK camp in Brexit negotiations is 'pathetic,' adding that the EU will do all it can to ratify a deal by the end of the year.

Welsh Health Minister Vaughan Gething told LBC that the Welsh health system is 'above worst case scenario,' which was key in implementing a swift nationwide lockdown on Saturday.

SAGE adviser Professor Catherine Noakes feared that heightened restrictions could remain part of life in the UK until a substantial amount of the population is vaccinated.

Swarbrick on Sunday is live from LBC's Westminster studio every Sunday from 10am and you can watch it live on Global Player, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
