Just imagining how this is going to be reported around the world.
The ludicrous and amusing gets reported and remembered. People's view of the UK will be shaped by this https://twitter.com/timloughton/status/1267842825535795201
Real number of people being tested for coronavirus is around 40,000 a day not 200,000 as govt suggests, according to Kate Lamble of BBC's More or Less. Double counting, tests sent out but not done, all being counted as tests done. Worse than just misleading.
Drivers could face fines of £130 for minor offences as the Government considers handing local councils new powers to improve roads for cyclists and pedestrians https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/news/motoring-news/automatic-130-fines-for-minor-driving-offences-coming/
You are not “following the science” if the UK Statistics Authority has to write to you and tell you that you are badly misrepresenting covid-19 testing data.
A very good letter to @MattHancock.
May was sunniest calendar month on record in UK
February was the wettest
Prof Liz Bentley: “It’s unprecedented to see such a swing in such a short space of time"

Worcestershire County Council are developing a coronavirus community response campaign.
The aim of the campaign is to inform and to encourage people and communities about how they can help others during these current challenging times.
In coming days the county council will be promoting these messages across all of their networks and channels and with the help of their partners.
They will be developing more materials and showcasing them at WCC buildings, through our schools, in GP surgeries and via our Parish Councils.
We want these messages to go as far and as wide as possible so please share these with your local contacts and on your social media channels.
