        Trouble is, they have said you can go out for exercise, it's a built up area, so I guess everyone has just gone out, but ended up at the same place together.. So yes, closing the parks will be the next step .................................................. ..............................Carol

          When the Government try's to appeal to people's common sense, its a bad mistake.

          Anyway sunshine is more powerful than politicians advice.

          I notice in some countries abroad, the Police hit people with sticks - that would work better!

            I've just seen a picture from France where they are lock down, but have just had a suspected terrorist attack. There were lots of people in the picture, and they weren't 2 meters apart ........................................Carol

                Don't care what they do in France. How much have we spent on the new hospital in the Excel centre in London and they can't keep 2 metres apart - beggars belief.

                  This is the video those who think itโ€™s OK to ignore the advice need to look at, especially when you get to 8 min 40 sec of this video in Bergamo, Italy a city I have visited twice, The last time two years ago, thankfully when things were very Different.

                    Sunday will be a big test for everyone, including the police. High temperatures forecast. I hope everyone behaves themselves. If not, the police need to be robust in their approach. They need to send a strong message to covidiots.

                      I think this is such a difficult one. Closing off huge parks will result in pushing people close together as they will still go out. If I was living in a high rise in London with children I can see the temptation to take them out doors when they are coped up so much.

                      The problem is people staying apart from each other which they seem unable to do. In the supermarket yesterday, I shopped alone and most people were very careful to observe the rule and stay separate. I didn't see any children at all.

                      Perhaps they need spacers which is the approach the supermarkets are taking. If the figures for infection rates aren't enough to make some people responsible for their and others health, then I don't know what it will take...Carol

                          Cattle prod would do the same thing and more enjoyable to use on some of these covidiots.๐Ÿ˜œ

                            The photos from Annies link they all looked to be keeping their distance.
                            The video was not a park so shutting them will force more people onto the other areas.

                            Ithink generally the very large majority are following the guidelines, there will always be a few selected photos and videos but gtoups of 4 or 5 may all be one hosehold.
                            Went up the Downs yesterday and there was no more than 20 people over the whole area,, but then photos of empty hills don't sell
