13/08/2020: Google sees a mobile useability error over Cookies Law splash

In my efforts to make the obligatory ePrivacy Directive (Cookies Law) splash on the mobile display of your site as small and discreet as possible, I seem to have fallen foul of Google.

In the minimised version, visitors simply see a statement across the top of their screen saying that they should tap it to get details of your Cookies Law statement. Unfortunately, in some cases now, Google in its obsession with driving everyone to use mobile devices has marked this down as a fault under the 'Clickable items too close together' banner.

In the composite screenshot, the left hand side shows the minimal version, which most customers will currently see, then on the right is the full version which at the moment is only visible after they have clicked on the short form version.

Once they click on the accept button, neither version of the splash screen is visible until they close their browser and log back in.
