We recently carried out a lockdown survey of our readers, asking them to answer 25 questions about the current situation.

This week we are running a number of stories looking at various aspects of the results that came out of the survey.

Yesterday we revealed how lockdown has affected those who took part in the survey and what their biggest concerns are here.
