A couple who travelled for six hours to stay in a UK beauty spot over the Bank Holiday weekend were promptly told to turn around and return home.
Gloucestershire Police said an officer greeted the couple when they reached the town of Stow-on-the-Wold in the Cotswolds on Saturday, to advise them that holiday lets were not open.
Under current government guidelines, people are able to travel as far as they wish for exercise purposes, but overnight stays are not yet permitted.
Families in Stoke-on-Trent have also been urged to follow public health advice after their were reports that closure notices on playgrounds in parks had been disregarded.
The number of confirmed cases in the city has been falling, but is still higher than the England and West Midlands averages, the local council has said.
