Police say that they will continue to patrols towns and villages in our area over this weekend and beyond to engage with people about the restrictions. Their aim is to encourage people to do the right thing in complying with the government request, before enforcement action is used.

Everyone should remain home unless they have a reasonable excuse to leave, which can be found by visiting www.gov.uk

This includes people wanting traditional Good Friday fish and chips, who are being asked to use a delivery service as people standing in large queues and around public spaces can put people at risk.
