‘It’s irresponsible!’ Hancock rages at Londoners fleeing capital ‘There’s NEW evidence!’

St Pancras: London passengers fill train station ahead of Tier 4

The Health Secretary Matt Hancock has called out Londoners who fled the capital en masse last night as “irresponsible”. He condemned the scenes of Londoners travelling out of the capital following the new Tier 4 restrictions. The London chaos followed Boris Johnson’s announcement earlier that day that the city and other parts of south-east England would be under new Tier 4 restrictions come midnight.
