bit late after the event, surely it would have been more effective stopping him coming into the town and not out of the town! At least he got his day out for his fine...

Wouldn’t waste time fining them , just stick them on a Covid 19 ward for 24 hours , let them see how devastating this disease is , if they catch it ? Well they’re clearly not worried as they wander around the country .

People are still not getting it!
I have friends who are saying people are still visiting family and neighbours in rural areas as if nothing is out of the ordinary!
