Meanwhile, Prime Minister Boris Johnson today said “common sense” about following the rules is needed as he told individuals to check the internet for the applicable restrictions.
Speaking at a press conference at Downing Street, he told reporters: “People will pick up on various discrepancies or complications, complexities that have arisen as a result of this local approach.
“The best thing I can tell you is that everybody in the North East or elsewhere, in Merseyside, the Midlands, everywhere there are local restrictions, get on the websites, look at precisely what you’re supposed to do.
“So much of this is about common sense and about following the basics of the guidance and just restricting the possibility of transmission from yourself to somebody else, or from somebody else to you.”
