'Borrowing to soften the economic blow of COVID-19 has led to a spike in the national debt, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).'

'Debt (public sector net debt excluding public sector banks, PSND ex) has exceeded £2 trillion for the first time; at the end of July 2020, debt was £2,004.0 billion, £227.6 billion more than at the same point last year.'
