Busy weekend for emergency services, despite lockdown

It was a busy bank holiday weekend for our region's emergency services, despite pleas for people to remain indoors and not break lockdown restrictions.

Police in Devon and Cornwall were called to more than 1,000 incidents in 24 hours, mostly for breaching lockdown rules or alcohol-related incidents.

The coastguard dealt with 97 incidents just on Bank Holiday Friday - the most since lockdown started.

That included people stuck in the mud off Burnham on Sea.

Around £25,000 pounds worth of cocaine was found in a car travelling down the M5 in Somerset towards Devon.

South Western Ambulance service warned staff are still suffering violence and aggression while trying to do their job.
