English group puts on hold legal challenge after pubs closures limited

Mon, 12th Oct 2020 16:24

LONDON, Oct 12 (Reuters) - A group of English pub and night
club owners have put on hold plans to mount a legal challenge
after the British government announced that hospitality and
entertainment venues would only close in Merseyside.

Sacha Lord, a club night and events operator, said they will
meet their lawyers on Monday evening, but will only act if
restrictions are placed in Manchester where he works.

"The plan is on hold," he told Reuters. "We are still going
to get the troops ready because obviously things are changing on
a daily basis ... we are not out of the zone yet."
