A CUSTOMER didn't have a face mask to wear as he entered a cafe to buy a sandwich – so he wore a plastic BAG on his head instead.

Staff at Mrs Browns cafe in Plymouth, Devon, were left in hysterics when the man walked in to make his order with a Co-op bag over his face.

Fit with two slots for his eyes, the man donned the blue plastic bag as he bought his sandwich at the Plymouth cafe.

The creative customer came into the cafe to order a Fat Santa – which is the eatery's version of a Sunday roast dinner served in a sandwich.

Staff at the cafe were so shocked that they snapped a picture of the man as they served him.

But they did advise him to wear a proper face mask next time.

A spokesperson for the cafe said: "He just came in to grab a Fat Santa as it was launch day!

"We all had a laugh and giggle and served him."

The man's hilarious makeshift mask debut happened on the first day of the second national lockdown – which is set to last for the next four weeks.


New restrictions were introduced across the country after the Prime Minister was warned of thousands of deaths a day by mid-December.

The PM has ordered the country to "stay at home" for four weeks in a fresh effort to "protect the NHS and save lives".

Brits are only allowed to leave home for school, work, medical reasons, exercise, shopping or providing care to the vulnerable.

Pubs and restaurants have closed, but are allowed to continue doing takeaways and deliveries.

Back in March during the first lockdown, commuters were caught on public transport wearing plastic bags and even BOXES on their head to avoid the virus.

At the time, wearing face masks was not mandatory – but some people went all out to protect themselves from the threat of coronavirus.

Meanwhile, police in England can now fine people £200 for leaving their homes without a reasonable excuse as the PM urges everyone to stay at home.

Travelling in and out of your local area is not allowed, and people may face fines if they break the laws.

People can still face fines for not self-isolating when they are ordered to (£1,000) and for attending or organising gatherings (up to £10,000).

And businesses can face extra penalties too for not upholding the laws in their premises.
