    Has anyone seen police enforcing this stuff locally? We've had posters put up on footpaths but we hardly ever get a police car in the village even in peacetime, mores the pity with groups of kids burning bins and so on!

    I drove to Anglesey on Saturday, single crewed. Saw cars being stopped. Yesterday my brother did the same journey and got stopped by plod, he had his wife in the car so I assume it's multiple occupancy they're looking for.

    Tomorrow I'm heading back to Anglesey for my mother's funeral with CM and offspring. If stopped I shall politely answer Plod's questions and I have no doubt we will be allowed on our way.

    I wonder how drug dealers are fairing at the moment.

    To ease the monotony of lock downs and the doom and gloom circulating in the media I suggest whatever you say just insert the phrase 'Get ****ed pig' after every sentence.

    It'll brighten up a gloomy day, I promise.
    Well it will mine anyway.

    There are reports coming in from around the country that the police trying to enforce "guidance" that bears little resemblance to the actual law. Quelle surprise. But, and having said that, just stay at home.

    If pushed, have a sob story ready and get your phone out to record the interaction for posting on social meedja.

    Kebab shop for beat cops
    We'll that's legal too. Sort of. How is going to get a kebab from the takeaway "essential travel"? But the shop is still open.

    There's a website that sets out your rights - google 'police stop and search - what are your rights?', you'll find stuff there.

    those sites might even be updated to reflect current rules.

    Only criminals have a problem.

    But stay at home, for the sake of everyone else's health.
