POLICE have spent the last 48 hours responding to complaints about parties and picnics where flouters ignore social distancing rule.
Officers in London said groups were gathering in the borough’s parks to have “pizzas, beers, wines,” despite social distancing rules and calls from the government for people to stay at home this weekend.
It comes after public services said that Friday has been the busiest day since lockdown began, with more than double the number of call-outs compared to the average day last month.
Boris Johnson is due to outline potential changes to the lockdown rules on Sunday, but has insisted any alterations will be “limited.”
It is thought that people might be permitted to spend more time exercising outside as part of the changes.
Currently, however, people are only supposed to leave home for work, food, exercise or health reasons and must maintain the two-metre social distancing rule.
