Sticking to same 12 people 'advisory' and not law, says CM

As Gibraltar enters its first day of unlock with freedom of movement, legislation published on Thursday prohibits the gathering of over 12 people at residential premises, including communal areas, gardens or patios. Anyone contravening this regulation, or failing to comply with a direction of a police officer, commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding £10,000.

Although the concept of a social bubble, and that it has to be the same twelve people, has not been enshrined in legislation, the Government says this remains its advice.

Christina Cortes spoke to the Chief Minister and asked him what exactly the position was.
