NINE out of ten police haven't fined anyone for breaking Covid face mask rules, it has been revealed.

Health secretary Matt Hancock announced plans three months ago to make face coverings mandatory in shops and supermarkets from July 24.

But a Freedom of Information request carried out by Digital Marketing Agency, Reboot, has revealed just four forces out of 40 have issued fines.

It comes as the military was deployed to Liverpool on Friday to help identify local sources of infection and provide assistance to health officers.

As of Friday, the military was carrying out 32 tasks under the official military aid to the civil authorities (Maca) mechanism allowing the Government and local authorities to formally request assistance from the Armed Forces.
