Whilst there were more people at the seafront last weekend , which in turn made social distancing more difficult , the media do tend to take these ‘long distance’ photographs which make people appear closer to each other.
Not saying there weren’t more people , but just also putting an alternative angle out there ( rather like the photographer ).

Seems Southend is focussed on being a seaside town,what they don't say is the thick people who will drive 50 miles with no Insurance and puts locals in a bad light!

I did put on my Twitter (@SZKev) but if you go onto the southend . Gov site, key workers can apply for a free three month parking permit, which allows you to park for free in council run car parks etc. Takes 5 mins and mins was approved within 24 hours!

Well worth doing.

Strikingly no new cases in 24 hours in London according to the Telegraph. Suggests they’re not all idiots and thick as ****. Or maybe just ones in SW1A ? 😉

Speaking to The Echo, the Mayor said “I'm pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have, in fact, caught and killed a large virus that supposedly injured some bathers. But, as you see, it's a beautiful day, the beaches are open and people are having a wonderful time. Southend, as you know, means "friendship".
