Covid UK news LIVE – Cops to get TOUGHER than ever on lockdown flouters as supermarkets crack down on coronavirus masks

POLICE have vowed to get tougher than ever with coronavirus lockdown flouters.

Met Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick said it was “preposterous” that anyone could still be unaware of the tough measures in place, adding that it was now “increasingly likely” flouters would be fined.

Her comments came as a string of supermarkets vowed to crackdown on those refusing to wear a mask in stores.

Morrisons said customers refusing to wear a mask without an official medical exemption will be told to leave, while Sainsbury’s said security will “challenge” shoppers who aren’t wearing masks or are walking in groups.
