Police have rushed to reprimand a group of selfish landscape gardeners, who were working out in the open, despite the specific government Covid-19 ban.
Pensioners in Trafalgar Road Birkdale fearing virus spread, called police after seeing three men working in a large neighbouring garden. Fearing this reckless labouring activity would flout government coronavirus restrictions in place to reduce contagion, the residents called Merseyside Police.
Officers promptly attended the scene and gave guidance to the inconsiderate labourers before dispersing.
