A woman was outraged after driving to the beach for an hour and a half before suggesting that others who did the same might cause a spike in coronavirus cases.
Jane Peacock made the mind-boggling assessment during an interview by the BBC, making viewers aware of the hypocrisy.
“It’s great to get out, but I’m quite shocked at the number of people here,” she said, relaxing on the beach.
“They don’t pay attention to social distance. I honestly find that annoying – it’s like being in Tesco. ‘

Her daughter, Ellie, added, “It’s nice to get out of quarantine, but I think it will peak again, because everyone goes crazy and can go anywhere.”
Twitter users labeled the Peacock family’s behavior as “selfish” and “irresponsible,” while others pointed out that she is part of the problem.
A user named MK wrote, “I think she sees herself as above the problem. This type of ego is what’s wrong with the majority of the UK. ‘
One user said, “For someone who engages in selfish, irresponsible behavior to criticize others for selfish, irresponsible behavior is the height of hypocrisy.
Don’t go to the beach or other beauty hotspots. Don’t drive an hour and a half to go somewhere. Just stay home. “
Another tweeter, Colm McAfee, said, “I am amazed. I just saw this on the news. A woman who drove 1.5 hours to go to the beach with her family complains about other people on the beach who have done the same as they have. Doesn’t she see that she is part of the problem? ‘
Meanwhile, Twitter user Jules M said: ‘Sorry Peacock family, I live a five minute walk from the beach where I live, send me a DM next time you want to come visit and I will drive the 1.5 hours to your house even things up. ‘

Claire Savage tweeted, “That’s why the limitations were imposed, such a lack of self-awareness.
“The same thing happens every time there is a discussion about reducing car use, many people agree, but it is never helpful for them because they need their car …”
People in England have started enjoying more freedom after Boris Johnson eased lockdown restrictions eight days ago.
Driving to open air spaces, including parks, beaches and beauty spots with members of the same household is permitted in England.
But the rules for not going on vacation or staying overnight in second homes still apply.
New rules make it possible to exercise more than once a day with one person who is not from the same household, provided social distance is respected.
Golf courses, tennis and basketball courts can be used and people can swim in lakes and the sea.
But getting together with more than one person from another household is still off-limits, as are public swimming pools, playgrounds, outdoor gyms, and recreation centers.
