Officers in Jersey will not actively police bars and pubs over the Easter weekend.

The force says it is confident islanders will stick to regulations despite hospitality reopening.

Chief Inspector Chris Beechey says Environmental Health will take the lead in enforcing coronavirus regulations over the long weekend.

Police will instead be carrying out their regular patrols focusing on clamping down on anti-social behaviour and keeping people safe.

However, Chief Inspector Beechey added that police would step in and enforce the rules if needed.

Hospitality venues must close by 11:30pm.
