Government To Lift Curfew
The government plans to lift the nationwide 'dusk till dawn' curfew introduced to calm tensions between police and members of the public, in the light of improved air quality and lighter fog.
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.
Disturbances started when a pea-souper fog covered most of the country, and pollution rose to dangerous levels.
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.
