Boris Johnson 'misspeaks' over north-east Covid-19 restrictions

Guardian, 29 Sep 2020
The prime minister has apologised after appearing unable to give a clear explanation of how new restrictions on socialising in the north-east will work. Asked whether households would still be able to mix in pub gardens, Johnson implied that the England-wide 'rule of six' does not apply to outside gatherings. He later tweeted: 'I misspoke today ... You should also avoid socialising with other households outside.'
