  • Upon arriving at the beach, Jane Peacock was shocked to find a lot of people there.
  • She and her daughter criticized them for “not paying attention to social distancing” orders.
  • Twitter users, however, called the family out for their hypocrisy, saying “they are part of the problem.”

Jane Peacock and her family drove an hour and a half to reach the beach at Durdle Door in Dorset, UK. She was surprised to find a lot of people in there and actually took time to rant about it.

In an interview with BBC, Peacock said that the people at the beach were “not paying attention to social distancing.” This has since caused outrage from netizens who called her out about her own inability to stay at home during the pandemic.

Jane Peacock found it “quite annoying,” saying “it’s like being in Tesco.”
To add insult to injury, her daughter Ellie added: ‘It’s nice to get out of quarantine but I think it’s going to peak again because everyone’s going to go mad and go anywhere they can.”

As expected, netizens online reacted strongly to Peacock family’s seeming hypocrisy, saying that they are irresponsible and selfish.

One Twitter user said:

“I think she sees herself as above the problem. This type of ego is what is wrong with the majority of the UK.”

Another commented:

“For someone who is engaging in selfish, irresponsible behavior to criticize others for selfish, irresponsible behavior is the height of hypocrisy.”

There were around 2,500 people at the Durdle Door beach who were also keen to take advantage of the government’s relaxation of the lockdown.

The Lulworth estate, which owns Durdle Door, tried to discourage people from visiting the spot during the lockdown by closing the car park to the cove. But now that the lockdown has been eased, people can’t be prevented anymore from coming.

James Weld, the owner of Lulworth estate, said: “Of course, now they can come. The police don’t have any power to stop them. If we hadn’t opened they would be on the roads walking around anyway.”

People in the UK are now allowed to go to open spaces such as beaches and parks with members of the same household. However, going on holidays and staying overnight at second homes are still prohibited.

Basketball courts, tennis courts, and golf courses are now open to the public again. Playgrounds, public swimming pools, outdoor gyms, and leisure centers are still off limits at the moment.
