Police attending Clap For Carers gathering at West Middlesex Hospital led by Amanda Holden are criticised for failing to enforce social distancing rules [LINK]

Amanda Holden fans have slammed authorities for not enforcing social distancing rules during a clap led by the presenter outside West Middlesex University Hospital.

Last Thursday the presenter, 49, showed her support for the weekly #clapfortheNHS exercise by joining hospital, ambulance and fire brigade staff to show their support for front line workers.

And despite recognising the cause, many fans questioned whether it was safe for attendees to be standing so close together, and questioned why the public weren’t made to ahere to the 2 metre rule amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Replying to local MP Ruth Cadbury’s video of the event, one follower wrote: ‘Genuinely don’t want to be a party pooper but is it not an issue that there seems to be 60/70 people there standing right next to each other?’.
