Police officers in the county are making several playgrounds and skateparks no go areas as the country continues to battle the coronavirus.

The whole of the UK entered an unspecified period of lockdown on March 23, after Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged the British people ‘to stay indoors’ as the virus continues to spread.

However, photos and videos have emerged of people not complying with the current social distancing rules, which state that individuals should remain two metres apart and that they must not leave their house unless it’s essential.

“Children struggle to understand why they cannot go and play when out for walks so we’ve helped you out by taping it off.”

In another post, they said: “Please stay away from children's playgrounds - they are taped off for a reason.

“Remember you can carry and spread the virus even if you don't have symptoms, so people repeatedly touching the equipment is a recipe for disaster! Not going will make a difference.”

So far, 39,469 people have died from the coronavirus.
