Podcast: Independent traders shut up shop ahead of lockdown 2 and calls for the homeless to be brought in from the cold

Independent traders across Kent are shutting up shop ahead of the second national lockdown to tackle the spread of coronavirus.

Non-essential shops, bars, pubs, restaurants and hairdressers are among those who won’t be able to open from tomorrow until December 2nd.

Hear from the son of a bookshop owner in Tonbridge.

There’s also a call for homeless people in the county to be given shelter like they were during the first lockdown in March – we’ve been speaking to Canterbury based charity Porchlight.

Plus we have reaction from the Gillingham boss after they ended a run of five games without a win in league one.
