Police have been conducting bike patrols around West Leeds parks, woodland and residential areas to advise and warn people to stay at home during the coronavirus outbreak.
A post the Force’s Leeds West Facebook page said:
“A large number of motorists were stopped and spoken with. Several large groups were dispersed and a number of warnings were issued.
“Officers obtained details of those warned, If these people are found not adhering to the new regulations they will be fined and/or summonsed to court.”
Leeds City Council has also been taping off the car parks to its parks to deter people from driving there in large numbers.
Pudsey councillor Simon Seary (Cons) said:
“We are in a lockdown for a reason, driving to do a food shop is classed as necessity, driving to a park to walk a dog isn’t!”
