  • Authorities in Berlin have appealed to people to follow social distancing rules after an open air party saw hundreds of people take to the city’s canals in boats at the weekend.
  • Social distancing rules were quickly forgotten and few of those present wore facemasks.
  • The row came as Angela Merkel held talks with her coalition partners on Tuesday on proposals for an €8bn (£7bn) package to help the German economy recover from the effects of lockdown.
