Don't Move Your Outdoor Gatherings Indoors, Warns Prime Minister

Don't Move Your Outdoor Gatherings Indoors, Warns Prime Minister

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged people not to move their gatherings with friend indoors as the weather worsens.

Speaking at today's daily coronavirus briefing, Mr Johnson warned that the hard work carried out so far could yet be undone if people do not continue to follow the guidelines.

The 55-year-old said that it was impossible for anyone to be safe 'until we are all safe'.

He said: "As the weather threatens to take a turn for the worse, some of you may be tempted to move the gatherings as you've been enjoying outdoors, indoors, out of the rain.

"I really urge you - don't do that."

Sir Patrick Vallance then went on to explain that though there was a steady decline in the number of new cases of Covid-19, the rate of infection was 'not coming down fast'.

She added: "There are no facilities down there, people are leaving dirty nappies, cans, bottles, cool boxes, underwear - you name it - it has been left on the beach.

"They are having BBQs which have caused fires. Local residents can't get their cars off the drive as people are just abandoning their cars, double parking so you can't get emergency vehicles down if needed.

"Local people are going down with bin bags to tidy up."

Local councillors have described themselves as doubly disappointed by the many people who ignored advice to avoid local beaches this weekend and by the level of parking issues and rubbish that were then left behind by people.

Large numbers travelled to Sefton's beaches over the weekend, from as far afield as Manchester, Wigan and Birmingham. On Saturday and Sunday, councillors say there was an average of 7,000 people on the beaches each day at any one time.
