“Don’t be one of those who thinks it is okay for you to bend the rules”
That’s the message from Suffolk Constabulary as the county looks ahead to another weekend in lockdown to tackle the pandemic and save lives and protect the NHS.
Last weekend (Friday 22 Jan to Sun 24 Jan inclusive) 42 people were given Fixed Penalty Notices for breaching lockdown rules over the three day period, and 41 people received warnings. The previous weekend (Friday 15 Jan to Sun 17 Jan inclusive) 56 people were fined for breaching lockdown rules and 39 people received warnings.
The message is simple – stay as local as possible to where you live. Where people are breaching the regulations and they are away from home without a reasonable excuse, they may be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notices.
