Report a social distancing breach
Although the vast majority of individuals and businesses are sticking to the Government’s social distancing rules, a minority continue to flout the laws and put the wider community at risk.
Brent Trading Standards and the Brent Community Safety Team have processed hundreds of coronavirus complaints since the lockdown began, including:
- Businesses flouting the social distancing rules by opening when they shouldn’t
- Retailers exploiting shoppers with unreasonable price hikes
- Large numbers of people gathering in groups.
Our enforcement team are working with you to be their ‘eyes and ears’ at this difficult time.
If you are aware of a business that should be closed but is continuing to trade, or a business that is exploring shoppers with unreasonable price hikes, please report this to your local trading standards service by:
- Calling the Citizens Advice Consumer helpline on 0808 223 1133, speaking to them via their online chat service or by emailing email@example.com
Alternatively, you can report cases confidentially via the London Trading Standards online consumer crime reporting tool
If you see a large group of people gathering, report them by:
Calling Brent’s Community Safety team on 0208 937 1058 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
