Humberside Police ‘Will Take Action’ Against Those Who Break Level 2 Rules


Humberside Police ‘will take action’ as Hull and East Yorkshire move towards Level 2 lockdown restrictions. It was confirmed earlier today (October 29) that the region will be placed in the high-risk category of the coronavirus alert system from 12:01 a.m. on Saturday.

This means that people will not be able to socialize with someone who is not in their household or support the bubble inside and cannot meet in pubs, bars and restaurants.

With the new Halloween restrictions coming into effect, people are reminded to only meet in groups of no more than six people when they are outside, this includes people answering the door for deceive or treat.

Deputy Police Chief Paul Anderson of Humberside Police Department said the force was now in a position where it “must take action” to prevent the spread of the virus.

He said: “I know some people may be frustrated that the restrictions have been tightened, but I would ask everyone, once again, to make the right decisions and take the right steps for the greater good.

“In the Humberside area, we were able to avoid higher levels of restrictions for longer, because the infection rates are among the lowest.

“I thank everyone who has played their part in this great effort so far. However, we are now, once again, in a position where we must take action to reverse the spread, protect the NHS and save lives.

“I also remind everyone that following the rules for level 2 is the best way to make sure that we don’t need to go to level 3, where the restrictions are much stricter and the impact on our lives, our businesses and communities will be affected even more and for a long time to come.

“My agents have worked with our communities throughout the pandemic, engaging those who don’t play by the rules, explaining why this is important and encouraging them to follow them.

“The people of the Humber area have risen to the challenge. We will continue to use this policing approach, however, where individuals consistently refuse to follow the rules, we will take action and impose fines.
