‘This has caused a major problem and senior officers are absolutely disgusted that soldiers have broken lockdown rules. If any are found to have taken drugs that night the book will be thrown at them but it is bad enough that their regimental colleagues are on the frontline against Covid-19. Just by breaking the rules on social distancing so flagrantly they have tarnished the good work being done by their comrades in Liverpool.’ said a local source.
