Hull roads ‘as busy as hell’ this morning despite lockdown

Roads in and around Hull were “as busy as hell” this morning, despite the UK “stay at home” warning. Posting a picture of a busy road in our area on the Hull Live Facebook Traffic and Travel page on Wednesday morning, one driver asked: “And this is lockdown?” It comes just a week into the latest lockdown, announced by the Prime Minister in an attempt to control soaring coronavirus cases. But since then the daily figures have continued to produce disturbingly high numbers of new cases and – tragically – deaths.

Responding to the traffic post, motorists were divided over the photo, suggesting that those travellers could be 'key workers' or people making essential trips. One said: “It’s hard to tell but they could be nurses, supermarket staff, carers, petrol/garage staff etc as quite a lot still have to work.” Another added: “It' called people work, plus you're in the traffic too.” And another agreed with that sentiment: “You’re one of the motorists on the road this morning as well as the rest. If you have a right to be on the road, maybe they do as well.” Join the Hull Traffic & Travel group We've created a Facebook group for people who live in and travel through Hull and East Yorkshire to stay up to date with what's happening on the roads and the trains. We will keep you informed about the latest news that could affect your journey to work or school, as well as at the weekend. We'll also let you know in advance if there are any roadworks, railworks or closures you should know about, or if there are any problems on the Humber Bridge. Join the group here. On Tuesday, the Government announced that there had been another 45,533 cases confirmed in the past 24 hours, while there was also a further 1,243 deaths – the second highest daily death toll reported so far. This brings the UK total to 83,203 deaths and the total death toll for our region stands at 540 people. In a press briefing on Tuesday, Home Secretary Priti Patel said police officers would be interpreting the lockdown rules more strictly after 45,000 people were revealed to have been issued fines for lockdown breaches.
