Police officers have moved-on individuals sat enjoying the sunshine in Shanklin this afternoon (Saturday), reinforcing the Government’s Stay at Home message.
Families, who have been cooped up inside for the winter under the national lockdown, have taken to the seaside to enjoy today’s unseasonable sunny weather.
However, Police have descended on the area to move people along as, officers say, families are not exercising and are instead sat down eating ice cream – even though takeaway food is permitted under the restrictions.
It doesn’t appear that any fines have been issued as of yet, with the course of action being simple gentle reminders.
