Nick Thomas-Symonds responding to crowds at Heathrow airport

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to images of large crowds at Heathrow airport, said:

“The Conservatives’ indecision and incompetence has left holes in our country’s defences. There’s no clear strategy in place and they are lurching from one crisis to another.

“The scenes at airports are incredibly worrying, with no social distancing and clearly risking transmission of yet more strains of this awful virus. Ministers need to get a grip to protect our country’s health.”
