In Peckham Rye park today, the playground is still open and there are quite a few children playing in there. Shouldn't the gates to the playground be locked now? Considering this virus lives on surfaces for 12 or more hours. Very worrying to see people with this blazé attitude to be honest.

Looks like that's gonna be the case from this evening within Southwark.

Southwark is now closing all lockable areas (including playgrounds) in their parks from tonight. See post in the new Covid-19 section of the forum:

Thanks shebe. I don't think they can do anything else. I'm glad tbh.

Great news Renata - but horse will have truly bolted with lots of avoidable contacts. Southwark Council needs to be on top its game despite central government appearing to lack focus.
