  • Chairman of the Met Police Federation said officers do not want to regulate law
  • The union is now demanding frontline officers receive Covid-19 jabs as a priority
  • It comes after huge crowds flocked to beaches and parks over the weekend

Unvaccinated officers do not want to continue policing coronavirus restrictions in the final month before restrictions are eased, according to the union chief.

Ken Marsh, the chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, said on Sunday that his members no longer want to regulate the law.

‘Police don’t want to police this. We have had enough of this. It is not policeable. It is not manageable,’ he told The Telegraph.   

Last week the Government announced that it would continue to vaccinate the population according to their age group. 

But the Metropolitan Police Federation, which represents rank and file officers in what is the UK’s biggest force, is now demanding that frontline officers receive their Covid-19 jabs as a priority.

It comes after huge crowds flocked to beaches and parks in their droves to take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather – but it seems that only some police forces are still trying to enforce the rules.
