AS I listened to Friday’s covid-19 briefing I reflected on the selfishness of some of our neighbours. I witnessed four men in their 40s digging and building a ramp for the BMX area that children developed many years ago.

I am sure these men are fathers but they did not follow the social distancing rules and cannot all have been from the same household.

When will people realise that not following these rules will result in deaths?

I sincerely hope their actions do not result in deaths or illness in their families.

We all have a responsibility to protect others.
