Coronavirus: pubs in Stamford, Rutland, Bourne and the Deepings serve final drinks after Prime Minister Boris Johnson tells them to close to stop the spread of illness
Pubs are serving people their final pints tonight (Friday, March 20) after being told to close by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Tonight, The King's Head in Stamford was busy with people enjoying a last drink before the closure. People were also in the town's Tobie Norris, although it wasn't as busy as a typical Friday evening.
The St Mary's Vaults pub opposite Stamford Arts Centre was closed at 6.15pm.
Katie Genever, landlady of The Bertie Arms pub in Uffington said she was upset to be closing the doors of the village pub that evening, but also relieved that a decision had been made.
