“While we will have additional officers on patrol, in and around the North Coast this weekend, we are reminding the public of the need to maintain safe social distance and to stay within their bubbles.

“To be clear, people who are showing disregard should expect swift enforcement. We will always engage with people first explaining the guidance and the law and encourage people to comply, judging each case on its own merits. However, where we are left with no choice but to enforce, we will take this measure in order to protect the most vulnerable members of our communities and help protect our NHS.

We always welcome information from the public about any illegal activities. You can contact police on 101, or make a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/

“We are asking everyone to work with us during this pandemic to ensure safe spaces for all and help keep everyone safe.”
