Asked by the AFP in Askrigg, in the north of England, the owner of the Kings Arms pub, Lisa Wright, said she was especially relieved to have escaped harsher measures. "There is a lot of speculation in the sector on a possible confinement, it's very scary," she said, explaining that she had already adapted her establishment to the health context.
