‘The should have done it a long time before and not a week before Christmas.
‘It's going to have a massive impact on everyone's livelihoods.'

Mr Ware added: ‘It's absolute madness.
‘I know health is the most important but money makes this world work.
‘There's going to be a lot of people out of business because of all this.
‘But you can drive to Chichester or Petersfield?

‘Just shutting down areas is complete madness.’
