This was the extraordinary scene outside of Grodzinski in Edgware, shortly before Shabbat, when a policeman fined the bakery £ 80 for chalking social distance lines before loading to ensure customer safety.
An official told a bakery worker who gave her name as Gemma, “I can’t help the law. We’ll be buying tickets soon to stop people gathering – is that wrong too?”
Gemma replies calmly: “It is chalk, it washes off. Would you prefer that my customers are not two meters apart? I do it for the safety of people – to stop the spread of the corona virus.”
The officer replies unmoved: “It doesn’t matter. It’s criminal damage.”
The person who appears to be filming the incident jumps to Gemma’s defense and tells the officer, “People are dying and that’s what you care about? This is terrible.”
According to unconfirmed reports, the fine was later lifted.
