Norfolk Police receive more than 300 calls reporting people breaking coronavirus lockdown rules

Norfolk Police have received more than 300 calls from the public reporting people breaking coronavirus lockdown rules.

Late last night the force tweeted: "#NESNT have been called to too many reports of breaches of the health order tonight."

Among the reports was a barbecue with over ten people, sunbathing in Chapelfield Gardens in the city.

As the lock-down on the country continues, Norfolk Constabulary's Chief Constable is urging people to "stay home" to protect the NHS.

Norfolk police received 160 calls from members of the public reporting people ignoring the guidelines on Saturday 4 April and a further 198 calls on Sunday 5 April.

As we head into the Easter Bank Holiday weekend Mr Bailey hopes people hoped will "respect the rationale for the guidelines" that are in place to protect the NHS and help save lives.
