130 Covid rule breakers reported in a week in Wolverhampton

More than 100 reports of businesses flouting coronavirus rules in Wolverhampton have been reported to council chiefs in a week.

A total of 130 have been made after people were urged to report Covid-19 rule-breaking in shops, businesses and workplaces.

Wolverhampton Council has so far served 10 prohibition notices and handed out four fines to those breaching lockdown measures.

Councillor Steve Evans, cabinet member for city environment, said: “Wherever people think that the law does not apply to them, we will not hesitate to take action as evidenced by the prohibition notices and fines we have given out."

The council's team of Covid-support advisors have already inspected almost 2,000 businesses – with some visited more than once.
