這是在該鎮被英格蘭公共衛生局指定為 "干預區 "後不久發生的。
他說，當超過6個人到達時，他 "應該回家"，他將利用他的新儀式角色來 "為該鎮服務"。
在他的新角色中，他說他想 "為這個城市做一些更好的事情，我正在做出補償"，他想集中精力 "處理涉及刀具犯罪和毒品的問題"。
It came shortly after the town had been designated as an "area of intervention" by Public Health England.
He said that when more than six people arrived he "should have gone home", and he would use his new ceremonial role to "serve the town".
"I'm really sorry, I made a mistake I regret; I apologise; I shouldn't have been there when more than six people arrived, I should have gone home", he told the BBC Three Counties Radio.
Despite what happened he said he was the right man for the job and he was working "to rebuild that trust and serve this town and to do something for our town - work with the local churches and serve the honourable people".
After the lockdown breach, a council adjudication panel met in 2020 to hear from Mr Masood to two fellow Labour councillors who also attended the prayer meeting - Tahir Malik and Waheed Akbar.
The panel said no formal sanctions would be imposed as it said it could only take action on a breach of code of conduct when councillors were acting in an official capacity, which they were not as they were at a private prayer meeting.
In his new role he said he wanted to "do something better for this town and I am making amends" and that he wanted to concentrate on "dealing with issues involving knife crime and drugs".
