‘Scores of Londoners have been pictured in parks basking in the weekend sunshine despite Government orders to stay at home to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Boris Johnson has repeatedly urged the country not to give in to the “fine weather” to help save lives during the pandemic.
“Don’t be tempted to meet friends at the park this weekend,” he tweeted on Saturday morning. “Do your bit to protect the NHS and save lives by staying at home.”
