Police in Somerset say most people heeded advice and stayed indoors over the weekend and away from places like Cheddar Gorge.

But not everyone, as they found shredded parts of tyres and black marks - from dangerous driving there.

A spokesperson said: "Cheddar Gorge is in lockdown, but it seems some people have taken advantage of the quite roads to shredded tyres and leave them for others to clear up. 

"They also left the Gorge with black tyre marks."

It come as a single phone number is now available for anyone in Somerset who needs Coronavirus-related support from their councils.

The Somerset Coronavirus Support Helpline number, 0300 790 6275, is now live and will make it easier for people access any local authority help they may need, including emotional support, in the current crisis.
It links together the district and county council contact centres and will be operating seven days a week, 8am to 6pm, making it the one number you need to remember for Coronavirus-related enquiries. The district and county councils usual phone numbers will be running as normal alongside the new number for non-Coronavirus related issues.
