Police sunk four lockdown flouters’ plans to buy a boat and fined them after they admitted driving 200 miles from Dorset to Milford Haven to look at one.
As part of routine checks, they wsere stopped on the A477 near Llanteg, Pembrokeshire, Wales, on Friday, May 8, when they came clean.
They were issued with penalty notices for breaching Covid-19 regulations.
Inspector Andy Williams said that while the majority of people are complying with the restrictions that have been put in place to ensure safety, “we are still coming across a small minority who do not seem to understand the regulations”.
He added that for as long as the restrictions remain in place, everyone must take responsibility for their own actions and ensure they only travel “when absolutely necessary”.
