With fine weather this w/end, remember to cycle or walk 🚴🚶where you can to reduce pressure on public transport. If (you're not in quarantine like me) you do need to hop on a train or bus remember to wash your hands, wear a face covering & keep your space to keep everyone safe☀

🚗 We’re encouraging motorists whose is due this autumn to get their test done this summer. ☹ Autumn will see double normal demand for MOTs. ❌Delays could keep you off the road. Beat the rush ➡ get your MOT done this August.

Unfortunately the latest Luxembourg data shows an increase in cases meaning the country will be removed from the travel exemptions list. Anyone arriving to any part of the UK from midnight tonight will therefore need to quarantine. More info here

For many people wearing a face covering is possible.However, there will be some who are exempt from wearing one. You should not challenge anyone for not wearing a face covering. See guidance 👇🏼
