Local police stop over 20 vehicles including 2 camper vans.

Officers from the Weymouth and Portland Neighbourhood Policing Team have praised those sticking to the rules laid down by the government on social distancing.

Yesterday while patrolling the area they stopped numerous vehicles and also spoke with several groups gathering after getting reports from concerned residents.

Although they said the 'vast majority' were adhering to the legislation both in practice and in spirit they also urged anyone considering coming to Dorset to stay away for now.
