The Lockdown Continues …
Police have continued to respond to reports of groups of people apparently ignoring the Covid-19 regulations and gathering in public spaces or in private houses and gardens. Where necessary, people have been dispersed with words of advice given and the need to stay home and observe social distancing has been explained.
However, overwhelmingly, people are abiding by the rules, staying at home and only going out when it is essential. Thank you to everyone for doing this – it is vital in helping to save lives.
Now to our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, covering the period 19th to 25th April. There is just one item to mention:
Fenton Hill, Pidley – Police received a report of a large amount of rubbish fly-tipped in the middle of the road at Fenton Hill, Pidley, late on Friday evening, 24th April. The rubbish was completely blocking one lane of the road and was posing a danger to traffic. Police contacted the Council’s Highways department to come and deal with the situation as an urgent priority. (Ref CC-24042020-0544)
