It was on the BBC national news last night.  An interview with a spokesperson from the NPCC following criticism of "over zealous" enforcement of the guidance by the Police exercising their new powers.


Although there's no dot gov dot uk clarification, I found this reference to it on the Devon Live webpage:


https://www.devonlive.com/news/people-can-drive-reasonable-distance-4006925

Rather depends on your interpretation of 'reasonable distance'.  The accompanying picture shows Tynemouth police standing a couple of feet from a car and leaning towards the open window to speak with the driver - slogan on the police car bonnet 'proud to protect'

Popping my thoughts on that in the Coronavirus Measures topic in the Hikers Bar so as not to hijack this topic ..

from Today's walk

I knew they should be there by now, but I had been avoiding the country park. I decided to go to the quiet part armed with a face mask. I hardly saw anybody else O0

Lovely bluebell photos.I think the moment when I felt saddest last week was when I realised I would miss the bluebells this year.

 :(

I don't know if there are any bluebells local to me here so I may miss them too. There are a few woods about so there may be some.

Lovely bluebell photos, keep them coming  O0

Nice to see - so far I've only spotted the odd little bunch in sheltered corners.

Do our native Bluebells flower earlier than the Spanish and Hybrid ones?
