A BRADFORD man has been ordered to pay more than £2,000 for failing to wear a face covering.

Cristi Paul Conache, 43, of Oakroyd Villas, Manningham, was fined by Preston Magistrates’ Court on April 27. 

On November 24 last year, he was said to have contravened a direction given by a police constable to wear a face covering when entering, or in, Asda on Corporation Street, Colne (above) without reasonable excuse.

The wearing of face coverings became mandatory in places like shops, supermarkets and shopping centres on July 24 last year.
