Photo emerges from Leeds weekend street party despite social distancing measures


Party people danced at “Bohemian Rhapsody” on East Ardsley Street this afternoon (Sunday, April 5) despite government warnings to stay indoors.

Earlier, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that sunbathing in public spaces was against the rules of social distancing from coronaviruses, as he warned those who flouted advice that they were putting the lives of people in danger.

“But there is a small minority of people who still don’t – it is frankly incredible to see that there are people who don’t follow the advice. “

He warned those who flout the advice, “You are putting the lives of others in danger and you are putting yourself in danger.” “
