“National lockdown looms,” leads the Times and several of Saturday’s papers. Boris Johnson is considering imposing nationwide restrictions from next week, the Times reports, following concerns that surging cases could overwhelm the NHS.

A press conference is expected on Monday to announce the new measures, according to the paper, with new restrictions potentially introduced on Wednesday and remaining in place until 1 December.
