Tough laws were imposed during the first part of this year

Thirty North Northamptonshire people who breached tough lockdown laws have been convicted of offences under the Health Protection Act so far in September.

Covid rates began to rise again at the end of 2020 so, to protect the NHS and save lives, the Government re-imposed strict rules for the first few months of 2021.

While most people from our county obeyed the regulations, others decided the laws didn't apply to them.
