Politicians break their own Rules
Dominic Cummings’ controversial actions stirred public debate in the UK. The main one being the trip to Barnard Castle to test his eyesite. Catherine Calderwood visited her holiday home.

Running and cycling surged in popularity as people sought outdoor activities while adhering to social distancing measures. People rushed online to buy home gym equipment and prices rocketed. I had been attending a Crossfit gym and I used the knowledge gained from that to train at home in the concrete backyard.
