Downing Street Calls For Social Distancing Over The Bank Holiday

Downing Street has urged the public to “continue to abide by the social distancing rules” ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend.

It follows reports that beaches and beauty spots have been packed as the temperature has increased.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman told a Westminster briefing:

“All of the anecdotal evidence suggests that the vast majority of the public are still following the rules."

“And by doing so are helping to save lives and we thank them for that."

“We recognise the sacrifices which the public are making but as we head into the long weekend we must all renew our efforts and continue to abide by the social distancing rules.”
