Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick is urging the public to call the police if neighbours persistently break lockdown rules.
She told LBC radio, “The last thing I’m going to say on national radio is everyone should be shopping everybody. I don’t think that.
“What I do think is, if you do have concerns that somebody is persistently not complying with the restrictions, with the regulations, then, yeah, you should talk to us.
“If you feel comfortable to do so, then talk to us.”
Dick said her force is receiving “hundreds of calls a day” from concerned people and fines are being handed to those who are “completely reckless” by having parties or pub lockins.
