Social media users have vented their anger after crowds gathered on Westminster Bridge for the weekly clap for carers, seemingly flouting social distancing measures.

ON Thursday evening, the weekly NHS clap took place at 8pm, with people showing unity by clapping outside homes, banging pots and pans and even setting off fireworks.

But many were outraged by the scenes with footage showing masses appearing to ignore guidelines of standing at least two metres apart.

The Met Police came under fire last week for for allowing the Westminster Bridge gathering, close to St Thomas’ Hospital.

In response, the force said it was reiterating the importance of enforcing social distancing to its officers.
