PEOPLE caught throwing snowballs during the coronavirus lockdown face a fine of £200, police have said.
The force wrote on Twitter: “There have been two reports of snowballs being thrown last night between 11 and 11.30pm.
“This is obviously not a justifiable reason to be out of your house, this behaviour is likely to result in a £200 Fixed Penalty Notice for breaking the lockdown rules.”
They later added: “This behaviour is not acceptable at any time.”
Superintendent Lansdale said: “In relation to last night’s incidents we are speaking to a number of people to identify who the three individuals involved were.
“At this time, no one has been spoken to or issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice.
