A Chislehurst pub serving takeaway pints was shut down by police yesterday after punters failed to observe proper social-distancing.

Revellers enjoying the hot weather formed queues outside The Ramblers Rest, which recently launched a takeaway drinks menu.

According to reports, crowding grew over the weekend, with "large groups" gathering on a nearby green, leading to public urination and widespread littering.

A witness, who wished to remain anonymous, said: "The crowd was nearly 100.

"This was the third day running issues had occurred with large groups of people drinking and not keeping to social distancing rules.

"This is not what easing the lockdown should look like.

"This type of thing is only going to get worse."

Police attended at around 4pm. No arrests were made.
