Irish people living in Melbourne have spoken about their "fear and frustration" after Australia's second biggest city went back into lockdown due to a new spike in coronavirus cases.

Victoria shut its state borders for the first time in a century and announced a phase three lockdown, which will last up to six weeks, after a record 191 new cases were confirmed on Monday.
