I HOPE the Government hasn’t made a big mistake by announcing early lockdown measures.

I spoke to someone who said he hasn’t seen Darlington’s South Park so busy during the day and nobody is taking any notice of social distancing.

The national press are to blame by printing front page gossip that lockdown is practically over.

There is an abundance of cars on North Road, where only a couple of weeks ago it was quiet, now you can’t cross the road. Where are they going?

If this gets any worse then there will not be an early end to this.

For God’s sake be sensible a bit longer and we’ll be okay. Stay safe.

John Brant, Darlington.
