Devon holidaymakers told to leave Cumbria and go home


This morning, a Camper Van from Devon was stopped in Windermere by Cumbria Police. The occupants of the van were "given advice" on essential journeys during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

A spokesperson said:

"The occupants of the van were escorted back to the M6 and told to go home."

  • Police have also intercepted a family of six (2 adults, 4 children) that had come from Leigh, Lancs for a trip out to the Lake District. They were also stopped at Windermere and escorted back to the motorway.
Yesterday Cumbria Police had issued a warning to those thinking of visiting the county. Assistant Chief Constable Andy Slattery said: “If you are considering travelling to a second home or holiday home this weekend for the holidays, I ask you please follow Government guidance and stay at home and only leave when necessary.

"Travelling unnecessarily to another part of the country is contrary to the guidance issued by the Government and could result in prosecution.

“This is serious and we need to protect ourselves, our families and to protect our NHS. Every contact we avoid lessens the spread of the virus. This is not forever, and it is a small price to pay for saving lives.

“Those out exercising locally are reminded to consider the local communities they might come in contact with and stay two metres from others. It is very important to maintain mental and physical health and people are entitled to walk, run or cycle locally but we ask them to avoid passing through farmyards or close to rural homes if possible.

"I would appeal to everybody to remain calm and avoid seeking to blame other groups for the situation in which we find ourselves. Animosity between sections of the community is counter-productive and we all need to work together if we are to beat this virus. Please stick rigidly to the social distancing measures yourselves and leave the authorities to deal with those who do not.

“Officers will continue to be out in our communities providing advice and ensuring that people are complying with the law.”
