Officers issued 16 fines over the weekend for non-essential travel after tourists continued to flout Government rules and travel to Bibury. 

Cotswold Neighbourhood Policing Team dealt with a number of people who had visited Bibury for day trips from places including Birmingham, Leicester, Enfield and Slough. 

PS Parker was on patrol in Bibury on Saturday speaking with local residents.

Despite government rules he spoke to visitors from five counties, with the furthest coming from Enfield, Greater London, for a day trip.

The neighbourhood team were out in Bibury again yesterday and had to ticket nine people for non essential travel from as far away as Leicester and London to walk in the Cotswolds.

Despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordering everyone to stay at home, officers also dealt with a number of people engaging in non-essential trips into Dowdeswell and Broadway Tower.

The Cotswold Neighbourhood Team have been patrolling villages and beauty spots and on the whole people are staying at home.

However, on Saturday, the neighbourhood team were called out to gatherings in Dowdeswell and Broadway Tower.

All the cars at Dowdeswell were from Cheltenham and two people were issued fixed penalty notices at Broadway Tower after travelling from Birmingham on a “Day Out”.

A spokesman for Cotswolds Police said a ticket was on the way in the post.

A spokesman for Cotswolds Police said: “PS Parker dropped into Bibury to see all was in order, sadly not.

“Amongst others, a family from Slough and a couple from Birmingham. Both as well as others reported. Five tickets on top of the nine issued earlier today.”
