Coronavirus lockdown puts nearly 12 MILLION Britons out of work: Firms have furloughed or laid off a third of country's employees, shock report finds

More than 11 million Britons have been furloughed or left unemployed by the economic shutdown due to coronavirus.

Shocking new figures reveal that nearly a third of British workers have been affected by the downturn that has seen many businesses shuttered and employees unable to work.

The lockdown is pushing many firms to the brink of collapse, with one report warning today that up to 11.7million people could be furloughed or left jobless in the three months to the end of June.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak is facing mounting pressure to boost his business bailout so that the Government increases its guarantee on loans to struggling firms to 100 per cent.
