Public should call police if they see others breaking 'rule of six', says Kit Malthouse | Covid-19

Telegraph, 14 Sep 2020
The British public should report others to the police if they host gatherings of more than six people, a minister has said as new restrictions to contain Covid-19 come into force.

The so-called 'rule of six' now legally limits social gatherings to six people both indoors and outdoors in England and Scotland, but indoors only in Wales.

If people think there "is a gathering of concern" said Kit Malthouse, they should "call the non-emergency number and let the police know".

The Police Minister said he hopes the "public will be encouraged by the police" to report illegal gatherings.
