Cops and council officials have been called out dozens of times to reports of Covid-19 rule breaking at licensed venues across Nuneaton and Bedworth since lockdown restrictions were eased.

That is according to figures disclosed to CoventryLive after we submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council.

Between July 4 and September 2, there have been 45 complaints/enquiries regarding pubs and other licensed veues in regards to non-compliance to social distancing requirements in the borough.

“In all cases the Warwickshire Police or officers from Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council have investigated the complaints and discussed the situation with the person in control at the premises in question,” the FOI revealed.

“No formal action has yet been taken against anybody regarding the requirements of social distancing in public houses or similar premises.”
