BRITS who failed to fill in their forms on Census Day 2021 yesterday risk being fined £1000 as the deadline for submissions officially passes.
The punishment for failing to complete the form, either physically or online, by yesterday (Sunday March 21) is a whopping £1,000 fine.
Meanwhile landmarks across the country lit up purple as a reminder that people have to fill out the Census 2021.
Buildings including the Blackpool Tower, the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff, and the BT Tower in London have been decked in purple lights – the colour used for the census.
The census takes place every 10 years with every household in the UK required to fill out a form providing details of who lives or stays at the property and details of the house itself.
This year’s census is only taking place in England, Wales and Northern Ireland as Scotland has decided to postpone until next year due to covid.
