And Finally… A Reminder About the New Regulations on Wearing Face Masks
With effect from Friday, 24th July, we are required to wear face masks in shops and supermarkets, in addition to public transport, where they are already required. We are also strongly advised to wear face coverings in other enclosed public spaces where there are people we do not normally meet.
Ministers have also answered questions from the media about the situation in take-aways and coffee shops – as of Friday, 24th July, we will have to wear face-masks in these places as well, if we are buying items to consume elsewhere. If we are eating in, then face-masks will not be required.
Please be aware that these reports do not contain all details of all reported crime. We do not publish details of domestic related offences or anything which may put a person at risk if information regarding the crime was made public.
As always, if you have information relating to any offence, or are concerned about any suspicious activities, please contact police by using any of these methods:
the '101' non-emergency telephone number;

Alternatively, you can use 'Crimestoppers' to make a report anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or by using their on-line contact form.
