Sunbathers in Shepherd's Bush were sternly reprimanded by the Metropolitan Police on Tuesday for disregarding the Government's coronavirus lockdown on its first day of enforcement. 

Officers ordered the Londoners off Shepherd's Bush Green as they basked in the Spring sunshine, saying "it's not a holiday, it's a lockdown" over loudspeakers. 

Boris Johnson ordered a complete UK lockdown on Monday evening with Britons only allowed to leave their homes in "very limited circumstances."
