Nottinghamshire Police is thanking people for adhering to Covid-19 health regulations after stricter rules were put in place last week.

Over the weekend the force issued a few warnings to people which included for breaching the rule of six and mixing with other households.

Last weekend ten fines were given out, including to seven students following a house party in Lenton.

New restrictions came into place on Wednesday (14 October) when Nottinghamshire was placed in Tier 2 of the Government's risk structure.

Since then the force has been carrying out increased patrols and working closely with partners including from the Universities, Council’s and NHS.

Superintendent Paul Burrows, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We're starting to get the sense that people are complying with the rules and have listened to the warnings we've been giving out.

"It's clear that we are taking coronavirus breaches very seriously and we've given plenty of notice that people who continue to flout the rules will be fined."

"Thankfully, this weekend it seems people have been understanding of that and I'd like to thank everyone who's co-operated and adhered to the regulations.

"It's a difficult time but there's no excuses for not following the restrictions and it's everyone’s responsibility to make sure they know what they are."
