Late night runners charged for curfew breach

Two people out running in the early hours of this morning were charged with breach of the shelter in place rules, police said today.

The pair were spotted by a police patrol on Harrington Sound Road in Smith's, near Knapton Hill, about 2.20am.

They were warned by officers they would be summonsed to appeer in Magistrates' Court.

A driver was arrested and charged with the same offence a few hours earlier after he led police on a chase over two parishes.

Police saw a black car on Warwick's Spice Hill Road about 11.10pm on Wednesday and followed it.

A police spokesman said that “the driver accelerated, turned on to Camp Road, refused to stop and went on to the Railway Trail off Scenic Heights”.

He added: “Officers were subsequently able to stop the vehicle and the driver was arrested and charged for breach of curfew.”

A motorcyclist spotted riding without a helmet on Spice Hill Road about 40 minutes earlier failed to stop for police and escaped after a chase.

Officers found the machine, registered to an address in Sandys, abandoned at the bottom of Warwick's Wellman Lane.

Police did not give details of the sex or ages of the people involved.
