Newcastle pub goers adapt to new coronavirus measures


Pub curfews have come into effect in Newcastle as part of new restrictions imposed in the north-east of England.Under the temporary measures, pubs and restaurants can only offer table service and must close at 22:00 BST.

Scott Jardine, who runs classic foodservice, said he had a client in four hours on Friday night. He doesn’t think early shutdowns will make a difference and says “the virus doesn’t die by 10 am”.

The rules apply to Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, Northumberland, South Tyneside, North Tyneside and the County Council area of ​​Durham.
