The message to stay home isn't getting through to some young people in Weymouth.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team received a number of reports of Anti-Social Behaviour and breaches to the Covid-19 restrictions at the Marsh Playing Fields last night.

They are reminding parents to keep children in.

The police say parents will be fined if their children are found in large groups.

A spokesman for Weymouth Neighbourhood Policing Team said:

"We would like to remind the public and parents to keep your children in and to avoid them meeting up in large gatherings.

"Not only is this a breach of the Covid-19 guidelines, this can put your children and others safety at risk.

"We will also be enforcing fines to parents for children we find in large gatherings.

"We will be continuing to patrol the area during our shifts."
