Social Distancing Seems To Be Ignored On Westminster Bridge Once Again

Social Distancing Seems To Be Ignored On Westminster Bridge Once Again

Social media users were quick to express their anger after it emerged that people had ignored the social distancing rules on Westminster Bridge once again.

The public gathered on the bridge in the UK's capital at 8pm last night (23 April) for the Thursday evening Clap For Carers initiative, where people are being encouraged to applaud for frontline workers.

The scenes left many people irritated by the lack of care being taken by people to stay two metres apart - like the government are advising us.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Absolutely absurd. My dad's partner is critical ill in hospital yet I cannot visit her... but it's OK for hundreds to gather on Westminster Bridge (again) including front line staff who really ought to know better."

Another added: "Westminster Bridge, again. The rest of us are sat at home, following the rules. These people gather together, doing the exact thing the people they are showing their appreciation for don't want them to do."

People Ignore Social Distancing Rule To Clap For Carers On Westminster Bridge

published at6 months ago

A third ranted: "@metpoliceuk turning 8pm Westminster Bridge into a party, lets all get down there next week and see how full this 'event' they have created needs to get before they wake up!! @MattHancock seriously sort this, rules are rules ALL week!!!"

Just last week, footage showed a huge crowd on the same bridge which included police officers and parents with children, showing that while the majority of people have been adhering to the government's guidelines, some are still ignoring the rules.

Last week, the doctor that posted the video to Twitter wrote: "I'm a doctor working at the hospital that's right there. And yes, I was also somewhat perplexed by the lack of social distancing."

Dr Sophie Cook, whose bio says she is a 'mental healthy key worker', commented: "One person sat on the beach, told to stay at home. Massive crowd at what looks like a police parade on Westminster Bridge, clap louder, oh and here's a fly past." The tweet was accompanied by a 'face palm' emoji.

Another doctor, who works at a hospital in London, commented: "Seeing masses yesterday on Westminster bridge clapping together, without distancing including police. I think it is an important gesture but a little ironic if in a large group."
