Members of the public are invited to watch the meeting from 1pm tomorrow on YouTube and submit questions in advance by emailing [email protected], posting on Twitter using the hashtag #NYscrutiny or commenting on Facebook.

Julia Mulligan has decided there should be a regular update on the Coronavirus response direct to residents and businesses - this is the fourth of those broadcasts.

Questions answered at the last meeting addressed, for example, how North Yorkshire Police were policing essential travel, and whether people could travel to their allotment, or to self-isolate in a different part of the country.

The updates replace the regular public accountability meetings which are an opportunity to ensure the police and fire service are performing as well as possible to keep North Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.
