Mayors stage revolt across UK to continue enforcing face masks

The Metro says: Face masks are set to remain mandatory on public transport across a number of regions in the north and west of England – despite rules lifting from Monday.

Dozens of English mayors have rebelled against Boris Johnson’s orders to scrap compulsory mask wearing from July 19, or so-called ‘Freedom Day’.

The mayors of Greater Manchester, Liverpool City Region, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, North of Tyne, and West of England slammed No 10’s latest approach to the pandemic and have taken matters into their own hands.

It comes after Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said he was not willing to put people in the capital ‘at risk’ with the Government’s relaxing of rules, and announced Londoners must continue to wear them on public transport
