Residents in Nantwich can report COVID-19 lockdown “rule breakers” on a new website launched by Cheshire Police, writes Jonathan White.

The force is asking people to let them know about possible breaches of current lockdown regulations introduced to stop the spread of the virus.

Those include social distancing measures preventing people gathering in groups and only making journeys when necessary.

Residents making a report are advised to only do so if they feel there is a significant issue or serious breach of the restrictions.

It asks people to check the guidance first regarding businesses or venues that are allowed to remain open or the “stay at home” measures.

The website allows someone to provide the location of where the breach has taken place, or is taking place.

However, police said that the new enforcement law, which allows them to issue a fixed penalty notice of £60 or £120 for second time offenders, is a “last resort”.
