Police Will Stop Cars This Weekend to Check They Are Making Essential Journeys
In the News
Police have warned people against having parties and making non-essential journeys this VE Day bank holiday weekend. And officers in Merseyside say they will break up large social gatherings and randomly stop cars to make sure they are making essential journeys. They said people ‘should not be using the bank holiday as an excuse to hold a party’ and warned they made arrests and issued fines after people ignored coronavirus lockdown rules. Chief Inspector Chris Joughin from Merseyside Police said: ‘Many thousands of people made sacrifices in order to protect us during World War II so the very least we can all do is listen to the government when they ask us to stay indoors. ‘We know that VE Day is as an opportunity to remember the people who make the ultimate sacrifice for us but we want to ensure that people still keep themselves and others safe.
