Cornwall Council receives 300 complaints of holiday businesses open for Easter

More than 300 complaints were made to Cornwall Council about holiday businesses staying open to visitors over the Easter weekend.

After investigation, the council said a number of those were found to be operating legitimately - accommodating NHS staff or other key workers.

However, some businesses were found to be in breach of current restrictions and were asked to close.

Those that did not comply face enforcement action, the council said.

The council says it actively discourages anyone from approaching another person to confront them about social gatherings, or businesses regarding them being open.

Instead, it suggests reporting businesses suspected of breaching restrictions via its website.
