PrettyLittleThing launches hoodie with a clever built-in face mask - and it costs just £16

PrettyLittleThing has launched a hoodie with face mask already attached - and it costs just £16.

The Black Oversized Mask Hoodie - which is available in black and grey - the latter of which comes at the cheaper price of £11 - features fabric with a built-in mask and comes in an oversized fit.

The product description reads: 'Add this hoodie to your off-duty collection. Featuring a black fabric with a built-in mask and an oversized fit, team this with casual bottoms and fresh kicks to complete your outfit of the day.'

However, the garment also comes with a note that the mask is not 'personal protective equipment.'

On Wednesday, Priti Patel said a minority of the public are 'putting the health of the nation at risk', adding that officers are moving more quickly to issuing fines where people are clearly breaching coronavirus regulations.

Some people don't have to wear a mask if they have a valid exemption, such as it causing them severe distress or because of a physical or mental illness, impairment or disability – and they do not have to carry proof.

But concerns are mounting that others are simply breaking the law because they don't want to wear one – and Priti revealed that nearly 45,000 fixed penalty notices have been issued in the UK since March.

National Police Chiefs' Council chairman Martin Hewitt warned those caught not wearing a mask on a bus or train 'can expect a fine' unless they are exempt - and police would no longer 'waste time' trying to reason with people such as those who disagree with the rules.

He said: 'Not wearing a face covering on a bus or a train is dangerous. It risks the lives of other travellers including those critical workers who must continue to use public transport to do their important work.'
