Pubs were reopened throughout Britain when police officers warned of the lack of social distance



Pubs were reopened throughout Britain when police officers warned of the lack of social distance

London (CNN) – Drunk people can’t keep their distance socially well, a British police officer warned after completing the night shift on Saturday – the first day the pub reopened in the UK after closing the coronavirus.

“The predicted night was busy and confirmed what we know, alcohol and social distance are not a good combination,” tweeted John Apter, national chairman of the Police Federation, a staff association for police in England and Wales.

Apter, who served in the city of Southampton, southern England, said he and his colleagues had dealt with “happy drunks, hot-tempered drinkers, fights” and antisocial behavior. “What’s clear is that drunk people can’t / won’t get social distance,” he said.

In a post on Twitter, London Metropolitan Police urged people to “please take responsibility, stay safe and follow the established social distance and other guidelines” when the pub reopens.

But pictures taken on Saturday night in the central London district of Soho, known for its pubs and bars, show busy streets.

Five pubs in Nottinghamshire, in the East Midlands region of England, decided to close early after anti-social behavior, police said, and officers made four arrests following reports of broken windows and minor attacks.

However, Inspector Craig Berry thanked “the majority of people who had acted responsibly throughout Saturday.”

Devon and Cornwall police, in south-west England, said they had received more than 1,000 calls on Saturday from community members, most of whom were linked to “drink-related disorders.”

And in Essex, southeast England, a tweeted officer said that the police had made four arrests.

British Health Minister Matt Hancock told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge that he was thoroughly pleased with how Saturday passed.

“From what I see, even though there are some conflicting images, very, most people have acted responsibly and this balanced message is very important. People should enjoy the summer safely,” he said Sunday.

“You have seen from Leicester and other places we are not negligent in taking drastic action if that is what is needed to control the virus. But the overall plan is always through locking to try to lift national measures – but it is very clear we will overcome local turmoil when we see it. “

That restriction reapplied Tuesday in Leicester, a city in the East Midlands, after a surge in coronavirus cases. It was the first in the UK to be placed under local lockdown.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
