The Government's advice to stay at home and only make essential journeys is being followed on the Yorkshire Coast.

That is according to North Yorkshire Police, who has thanked the public for heeding the advice. 

The force's Chief Constable, Lisa Winward, said:

"The vast of majority of people within North Yorkshire are absolutely following that guidance, but there are still a minority who are not following the national guidance.

We've issued a number of tickets over the past weeks.

They have predominately been in situation where people are moving around for journeys that are absolutely not essential.

People are travelling hundreds of miles either across our county or into the county to undertake activities that they could undertake much closer to home. 

We've also had a number of groups of people together predominately on the east coast.

We've had a lot of groups of people drinking and socialising with each other and again, putting others at risk in terms of each other's safety and the spread of the virus.

We will be continuing to stop and engaging with people and ask them about their journeys, and assess whether those journeys are essential."

So what is absolutely essential that a chief constable or one of their deputies needs to be travelling to other parts of the county to visit the stations, are their subordinates competent to do the job without these non essential visits of the big wigs?
