There is no law against driving to a site for exercise. The police still overreacted in the most Stasi way.

When you see the people crowded cheek by jowl in Hyde park, full car parks and not a copper in sight you know that they're priorities are not right.

I don't think the issue with the Stasi was fines But the police obviously misjudged matters here.

Depends on the walking. How about walking around inside your home? They were carrying takeaway hot drinks, so exercising wasn't their priority. They must've met up to get the drinks before going out "walking". They were wearing wellington boots, hardly footwear suitable for power walking. It was TWO households meeting up. Against the rules, whatever way you try to twist it.

They WEREN'T exercising. They were meeting up in a place where they thought they could get away with it.

Shop staff are not qualified to determine who are exempt and who aren’t.

It’s a headline designed to deter people that’s all, it won’t be implemented. I reckon I could walk into Morrison’s next week without a mask if I so wished, tell the guy at the door I’m an asthmatic ( I’m not) and be allowed to go about my shopping.

Re: Coronavirus

Of course, there is also nothing to stop people taking them off once past the door.

There are also people who genuinely just forget, Ive done that at least twice when out shopping.

They WEREN'T 2 strangers that were accidentally at the same location. How is that NOT a meeting between two households?

You DON'T start off "exercising" by having a hot drink. You might need a drink AFTER exercising, but not before. They were BOTH wearing wellington boots, not hiking boots or other footwear suitable for "exercising".
The main issue was the meeting up. One household "exercising" on their own might be a different matter.

Re: Coronavirus

Current rules

Quote:
* exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
They were within their local area, and has been pointed out many times, there are actually no distance limits as such.

You're grasping at straws to defend a stupid over-reaction, why ?

Probably not but what's the purpose of the state broadcaster if it's not to highlight the plight of the white middle class?

Also curious if the staged photo for the BBC website was an essential journey.
