People have been warned not to use a Somerset weir after 'hundreds' ignored social distancing rules this week.
Tellisford Parish Council clerk, Anthony Battersby, urged people not to visit Tellisford Weir near Frome, after he says the area was packed with visitors on Wednesday 20 May.
He claims people ignored social distancing rules, parked cars nearby, blocked the road to emergency vehicles, and left rubbish everywhere.
The weir is private property belonging to Tellisford Mill which is also responsible for its maintenance.
Anthony warned that when people stop and stand on Tellisford Bridge or walk up the packhorse steps it is not possible to maintain the two-metre rule.
