Police: Ten people stopped for breaching curfew
Police officers have caught ten people in breach of the 11pm curfew since Friday - with one offender stopped twice.
A police spokesman said today that curfew checks were carried out at several locations over the weekend to enforce the measures, introduced earlier this month to slow the spread of Covid-19.
He said: “Please be aware, the curfew is in place from 11pm to 5am.
“Individuals out and about during these hours without an official exemption as outlined in the curfew regulations could find themselves summonsed to appear before the courts.”
The spokesman added: “The BPS wishes to remind that we all have a part to play in stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus, and abiding by the curfew regulations is key to helping achieve that objective.”
