Maskless commuters threatened with £200 fines as crackdown begins
The Metro says Commuters have been warned that Tube staff will begin handing out £200 fines as part of a crackdown on face mask rulebreakers in London.
Face coverings were made compulsory in shops and other settings such as banks, post offices, hairdressers, and public transport in response to the Omicron coronavirus variant.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said that fining customers who fail to wear them will ‘greatly help with compliance’.
Eight new cases of the worrying new strain were identified in England on Tuesday, bringing the UK total to 22.
