A barbers on Plumstead High Street has become the first business in Greenwich borough forced to close after ignoring lockdown orders.
Members of the public reported the business was continuing to operate and upon investigation a business closure notice was served.
Only a small number of shops serving essential items such as food are allowed to remain open.
It is expected that the lockdown will be extended later this week. While some nations that locked down early are now beginning to have very limited openings, the French President yesterday announced a four week extension of their lockdown and the UK was one of the last major nations to order closures resulting in the country still not reaching its peak.
