The MP for Bournemouth East, where thousands converged on local beaches yesterday, has called for the creation of “a national situation centre”.
“I would hate to see Bournemouth or any seaside resort become that place where the second spike is the first to appear,” said Conservative MP Tobias Ellwood.
“That can only be avoided if local authorities are given the necessary and swift support.”
Ellwood added: “We need to make sure no beach is seen like we saw yesterday. Until there’s a vaccine we should not be seeing behaviour like this.”
Photographs showed beaches and beauty spots heaving with people on Wednesday, which was the UK’s hottest day of the year so far.Article share tools
