The Guardian:  Young men are more likely than young women to break lockdown rules, research suggests.
 A team of psychologists led by Dr Liat Levita from the University of Sheffield surveyed 2,000 13- to 24-year-olds in the UK to examine the impact of the pandemic on young people.  They found that half of young men aged 19-24 had breached lockdown rules to meet friends, compared with a quarter of women of the same age.  A fifth of men aged 19-21 are thought to have been dispersed, arrested, fined or taken home by police for breaking the rules, compared with one in 10 women in this age group.
 According to the research, men aged 19-24 were likely to have a positive perception of people their age breaking the rules. It was suggested they could regard these people as “cool” and “independent”, while other groups saw them as “self-centred” and “immature”.
 Researchers also found that up to half of young people now feel significantly more anxious than before the lockdown.
The youngest teenagers showed the highest rates of anxiety, while older groups showed lower levels of overall wellbeing.
