A man who repeatedly approached shoppers at a Tesco superstore has been charged with breaking coronavirus social distancing rules.

Steven Norman Mackie, 53, was allegedly out of his home without good reason and was approaching members of the public queuing at the Tesco store in Stalybridge, Greater Manchester, on Saturday.

Police officers "advised" him about his conduct but he continued to approach people contrary to social distancing rules and Government guidelines on the restriction of movement during the emergency period, Greater Manchester Police said.

Mackie, of Stamford Street, Stalybridge, has been charged with one count of failing to maintain public health and causing public disorder and nuisance contrary to regulations 6, 9(1b and 4) of the Health Protection Regulations 2020.

He is due to appear at Tameside Magistrates' Court on Monday.
