Police slam covidiots flouting rules in Derbyshire beauty spot AGAIN as bikes seized
Police attempting to keep a popular Derbyshire beauty spot clear during lockdown say a ‘growing minority’ are ‘undoing their good work’ by travelling to the area unnecessarily.
Derbyshire Roads Police say they have issued tickets and seized a number of bikes in Matlock Bath after people made ‘non-essential journeys’ there over the Bank Holiday weekend.
It comes after the town was pictured rammed just before lockdown measures were imposed, and empty the following weekend following an operation to clear the area.
The unit tweeted: “Quite a lot of non-essential journeys today. We aren't the fun police but looking at Twitter it feels like a growing minority are risking undoing all the good work previously done.”
