South Yorkshire Police now has a dedicated unit for breaches of the coronavirus regulations – and have launched an online page where people can report those who flout rules on mask wearing, mixing households or breaking the Government’s rule of six.

Superintendent Paul McCurry says police officers have always sought to engage the public in the first instance, and explain the measures currently in place; however as cases continue to rise across the region, police will now take a stronger stance against clear-cut breaches.

He said: “We are now in a position where everybody should understand the seriousness of the situation we are facing. These rules are in place to prevent further strain on our NHS and protect the public – especially society’s most vulnerable.”
