The police have struggled with getting the local population to adhere to lockdown guidelines. 6 days ago, they warned everyone that those who are caught breaking rules will face a fine. This followed criticism of the police and their reluctance to split up groups of young people this half term. The police did try and use social media to reiterate that following the rules was a necessity. It seems as though, none of the £10,000 fines have been paid. But, that shouldn’t be a big deterrent for couples hoping to flak the rules as this year couples have been fined in Northamptonshire.
