Assistant Chief Constable Darren Downs says he is pleased that residents in the region enjoyed the bank holiday weekend safely.
He also added that local police engaged with the public and as a result issued just a handful of fixed penalty notices. Now he hopes that people will continue to follow the rules outline by the government.
Assistant Chief Constable Chris Noble has issued a statement detailing the rules when it comes to travelling during the lockdown.
In his statement, he acknowledges that most people are following the guidance when it comes to travelling. However, he also adds police officers will not hesitate to question people they feel are not ‘staying local’.
