EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell says we must all follow what PM Boris Johnson said yesterday about new restrictions.

He announced tough new rules to help reduce the rising number of cases again.

Caroline says he is right.

She said: “You may have seen Boris Johnson’s press conference setting out new rules that we must follow as we continue to try to fight the spread of Coronavirus.

“Despite the enormous efforts we’ve undertaken so far more needs to be done and so from Monday 14th September the number of people legally allowed to meet socially will be reduced from thirty to six. (There are exceptions such as schools and workplaces).

“It is absolutely critical that people abide by these rules and that we are stringent with basics – washing hands, covering our faces, keeping space from others, and getting a test (only if you have symptoms).

“We will beat this. Please stay safe everyone.”
