Ten of these were distributed in Scarborough, where banned indoor gatherings had taken place. In a press briefing to the North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum, Superintendent Mike Walker, coronavirus response lead at North Yorkshire Police, said: “No fines were handed out but I do have confidence in our officers and PSCOs that if fines were the proportionate response then they would have been issued. “So outdoor gatherings are governed by the rule of six or two households.

Supt Walker added: “Clearly the continued ‘four Es’ approach is vital to help our officers and PSCOs determine whether there has been a breach in the regulations. “But my message to the public as the weather gets better as we saw on the Stray that day, people either plan or spontaneously go to public outdoor spaces. “If you do go to public outdoor spaces you need to make your assessment when you get there as to whether it is safe for you and your family to be there. So that’s the expectation as that is common sense.” Residents in Harrogate were left appalled at the state the Stray had been left in following last week’s warm weather. Rubbish was left scattered across the park alongside empty takeaway bags and bottles.
