European Commission seeks to lift border controls by end of June

Mandatory face masks on public transport in England

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she is considering whether to make it mandatory to wear face coverings in some situations.

Mr Shapps said people should wear the kind of face covering that can be made at home.

As of 15 June 2020 it will be mandatory for public transport passengers to wear face coverings in England, with operators and police able to issue fines and refuse service to those not complying.

Public transport will also be "ramped" up with additional trains, buses, and subways added to existing routes, in order to reduce crowding as people return to work.

Transport union leaders welcomed the move last night but accused the Government of risking a unsafe surge of passengers on the network by easing lockdown too early.

Like Churchill - we saw him inspecting the bombing damage, it sent a powerful message of leadership to the British people. Most of the protesters have been peaceful and tried to discourage violence. "They did so peaceably".

"So, while respecting social distancing and maintaining good hand hygiene remain the most important steps we can all take to stay safe, wearing a face covering can play a role in helping us to protect each other".

However, very young children, disabled people and anyone who struggles with breathing will be exempt. But broadly, as we come through this phase we are doing what many other countries have asked transport users to do.

Grant Shapps said that the use of face coverings will be "offer some, albeit limited, protection" against the spread of coronavirus as passenger numbers increase with the further easing lockdown measures.

In Wales, face coverings have not yet been recommended for the general public.

"This is about people being sensible".
