Couple Returned Home By Police As People Continue To Visit The Cotswolds


The beautiful Cotswold villages of Bourton-on-the-Water and Bibury are normally full of tourists for a holiday weekend, but residents will be happier this year if visitors stay away.

Despite a major campaign to stop people from leaving their homes and traveling for exercise and non-essential travel, tourists still visit Gloucestershire, in violation of restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID- 19.

In one of the latest incidents, two cars were stopped in Bourton and drivers received tickets for breaking Covid-19 rules – they had driven from another county for a date.

Police also acted on public advisories when officers were deployed to the county after receiving numerous calls to their force control room.

Lockdown rules mean that people should only leave home for essential reasons – such as shopping, getting medical supplies, or exercising.

Elsewhere, an interrupted interview on the A429 was found to be a non-essential trip, the driver was fined and drugs were seized from the car.

And at Moreton Valance, police arrested a rickety unicycle driver who they called “danger to himself and others” as he left Quedgeley on the A38.
