Local councils in England will receive £30m to fund measures including Covid marshals, to ensure the public and businesses follow coronavirus rules.

A further £30m in government funding will be split between police forces in England and Wales to aid enforcement.

Marshals will not have powers to enforce the law but will advise people on how to follow the rules, Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick said.

The Local Government Association warned authorities are at "tipping point".

The government said the funding would help step up enforcement of coronavirus rules in a bid to tackle the rise of infections.

Covid marshals 'unlikely' in England, councils say
'Nobody knows' how Covid marshals plan will work
Who are the Covid marshals and what are their powers?

Mr Jenrick told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that Covid marshals could knock on doors, as they had done in places such as Leicester, but would not be able to enter properties.

He said: "They won't have the power to enforce the law so if there are particularly egregious examples they would need to escalate that to the police and I think that is the right thing to do. We are not expecting local council officers to get involved in that."

Some of the funding will go towards environmental health officers who do have enforcement powers to ensure businesses obey the restrictions, Mr Jenrick said.

He said he expected the funding to be "used sensitively to help to educate, inform and engage members of the public".

Nesil Caliskan, from the Local Government Association (LGA), welcomed the funding, but said in many areas regulatory services are already "at tipping point".

He said with councils leading local work to tackle Covid-19 the government needed to ensure they had the funding to maintain "vital trading standards and environmental health services over the next six months and beyond".

I understand what you say, but remember these suggestions are backed by lockdown rules with the threat of fines and punishment, Our law makers are parliament, who have not been consulted about these rules, we are slipping towards rule by edict. Won't happen here , how many countries have said that???????

The price of freedom is continual vigilance.

The goodhearted thing to do is kill them all. British authorities have so much child abuse in their hands that it would make a Catholic priest blush, they'll arrest and therefore abuse a 12 year old boy for saying nasty things to a millionaire. This is what abuse of power looks like. Uncle Tom's selling us down the river to the Chinese, orphans delivered to kebab houses etc. To obey the law is evil.
