News flash, if your out taking pictures your part of the problem.
What about those of us who have to be out to go to work taking pictures of offenders? Are we part of the problem?

Nowadays ''Dog for rent'' is a very lucrative business !

Funny you should say that Annetje.Our neighbour uncle barry told us the other day on his dog walking route in the valley he has never seen so many strange people without a dog and dog walkers even parked cars.We are in a very quiet part of the countryside with only two policemen.I can only assume these people think the rules do not apply to them

Someone's being a clever businessperson

If we move to only being allowed out to walk a dog I might have to borrow one. My sister has lots, she'd better give me mates rates

This is a true story. The people living in the apartment above ours rented a dog. Trouble is they can't get it to walk with them. It lies down on the ground immediately once its outside, looks extremely worried and it won't go.

So they carry it in their arms wherever they go. Its a grey and white pit bull stratford terrier type, very cute dog.

These two and the dog go out at all hours of the day and night and stay out for several hours.

I was tempted to phone the police. I imagine though that they are getting their just deserts without any interference, if not now they will in a short time.

Holiday areas in the UK are telling people NOT to come for Easter, particularly Cornwall as there are not that many hospitals, and, camping and caravaning sites are all closed, as are most of the B&Bs

Its happening here in France as well. No holidays for easter was the protocal on April 1. Seems to have had little effect on what french people are doing. We live near the coast, but it isn't a tourist town and yet people are coming and going. Plenty of large city people have moved in this week. Tons more car traffic this week than we've seen in the first three weeks of the lockdown.

There's stupid people all over the world.

Portugal has imposed a ban on travelling outside your council area over Easter.
I'm sure the GNR will be kept busy stopping Lisboetas from driving to the Algarve or the Atlantic coast.......

I've learned to never underestimate the stupidity of humans.

A sunny Easter weekend, how busy is the New Forest going to be? Bournemouth Beach (if it's open?), Southsea Common (again, if open), big parks like the Common in Southampton etc.

That's just in driving distance from Southampton. Let alone going to the South West or London Parks or those huge, open Northern parks and areas.

Daily Mail and Piers Morgan might explode come Tuesday morning paper time.

Hi.in spain you would be fined for doing that, you are breaking the law,The police also take a photo of your car number plate and give you another verbal warning on what to expect if you are stopped next time.I think in the UK this is not the law and if it's hot and sunny they will be out and about especially the new forest unless the police are on the M27 waiting

I'm not going out to see how busy the A12 gets, let alone the coast road. However, as most of the second-homers are already here, it might not be so bad this weekend.
