    This was actually raised by at least 2 reporters on today's CV briefing, the topic of police being over-zealous in their interpretation. Last thing you want is a policeman being given power to decide the rules.
    Quite. There is actually nothing in the law that defines what local means or that bans driving:

    ‘Stay local’ during the pandemic message strengthened

    It really makes no sense to stop people driving a couple of miles to walk in a little used area instead of walking through a built up area to exercise in a crowded park.

        They’re damned if they do damned if they dont
        if someone you know / love dies of Covid 19 and it gets worse you’ll be begging for the police and army to make people stay at home. So basically stay at ******* home
        What happens in General, stays in General.
        You know what they say about assumptions!

          Having argued with several police officers(and received many plaudits too I might add), you can know your rights and enforce them. It will make no difference to the outcome but take longer. PNC check is typical - which always makes me laugh.

          I am not fan of the police force, though I am hugely supportive of individual officers. At the moment, the force is doing a great job. IMO.

                  FYI You are legally required to identify yourself to police if you are driving a vehicle - you don't have a right of silence to stay anonymous.

                    Can you hand over your 'papers' in silence?

                      Sounds correct. I've no problem doing that. They can write me a letter
