Police to share details of Sudbury business' alleged breach of Covid rules with Babergh District Council
Police have received reports that a business in Sudbury allegedly breached Covid rules by opening to customers at the weekend.
It comes after posts on social media alleged that a barber shop in the town had opened yesterday, despite the current rules not allowing such businesses to be open.
Officers said the details would be shared with council officials, who monitor business compliance with the regulations.
Non-essential retail, public buildings and personal care premises such as hairdressers and salons will be able to reopen in step two of the Government's roadmap of lockdown - from April 12 at the earliest.
A police spokeswoman said they did not receive any reports of the alleged breach yesterday, but the allegation had been shared with them today.
She said: “This morning we received a historical report of a breach of regulations by a shop in Sudbury.
"Officers have collected the details and will pass this information on to local district council officials who continue to monitor business compliance with the regulations.”
