Government To Lift Curfew
The government is to lift the nationwide 'dusk till dawn' curfew introduced when a pea-souper fog made life in some places almost impossible, and riots broke out around the country. Official sources claim improved air quality and lighter fog has led to better conditions.
New laws were rushed through Parliament last year, in a bid to help the police regain control of certain ’No-Go’ zones in parts of the country, especially London's East End.
The disturbances started when pollution rose to dangerous levels, and people were urged to stay indoors. Many businesses went bust, and basic necessities became hard to find.
Emergency services were called to deal with respiratory illnesses, and several thousand people died.
This announcement has drawn criticism from groups concerned about public safety. Many claim this development is to help promote an event hosted by an influential British company with strong links to government.
