Ban on social gatherings of six or more
Wednesday, 9 September
Nick Ferrari looks at the Government's announcement that the number of people legally allowed to meet socially reduced from 30 to six, with reasonable exemptions. The limit applies nationally, indoors and outdoors, and to all ages. Any group larger than six risks being dispersed by police or fined for non-compliance. Failure to comply with an officer’s efforts to engage, explain and encourage will result in the enforcement of a £100 fine. This will double on each further repeat offence up to £3,200. Health Secretary Matt Hancock joins Nick to explain the latest restriction.
