Law enforcement teams on London public transport for mask rules – .

Transport Enforcement teams were located in the hubs of Stratford, Canning Town and Victoria.

They also patrolled buses, trams and DLR trains across the capital.

In Victoria, a team of four stopped anyone walking through the station without a mask and warned them that on the first day a reminder would be given, but after that fines would follow.
Officers shouted “face coverings are mandatory on the network” as commuters passed.
One of the law enforcement team members said, “Most people listen and are very good and apologize. We have had belligerents in the past, but today we ask people politely and they respond well. Maybe they missed the news or something, so we’re giving them a chance.
The team arrested dozens of maskless commuters despite the majority of people wearing masks.

Some even wore a gas mask-like device as the new Omicron strain of Covid hitting Britain increases concern.
The public address system and warnings on billboards emphasized that not wearing the required masks would not be tolerated.
Wearing a face mask has been a condition of travel on TfL services since Covid’s legal restrictions were relaxed in mid-July, but they were not required by law as they had been earlier during the pandemic.

Some people are exempt from wearing masks.
Most commuters praised the enforcement of the rules.
Margaret Traynor, 60, said: “People have to play by the rules. I’m glad TfL is stopping people.
George Savides, 22, said: “This is an important message, I am young but of course you have to wear a mask to protect others. “
