Derbyshire Constabulary Request Residents to Exercise Locally
Derbyshire Constabulary have today issued the following statement;
"What a lovely day! The perfect day to drive up into the Peak District for a walk, bike ride, climb or horse ride, isn't it?
No, actually it isn't.
We're seeing a lot of confusion over whether people are allowed to travel to the Peaks to undertake daily exercise while the government are asking us to stay at home. While we have this fantastic space in our county, right now is not the time to be using it.
Daily exercise should be taken locally to your home. Under government guidance all travel is limited to essential travel only. This is to help ensure that our emergency services aren't put under even more pressure during this time.
Should you trip, fall or have a road traffic accident while you are travelling to, or are out in the Peaks, then this will add additional pressure to an already stretched service.
The safety and wellbeing of you, the residents of our beautiful county, is our priority and these measures are being put in place to ensure that you are kept safe.
If you need advice on how to look after your wellbeing at home during this time visit https://www.gov.uk/…/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-w….

Please stay at home and stay safe and help keep others safe.
