Police Inundated With Calls From People Reporting Neighbours Who Go Out Running Twice A Day


People are actually reporting their neighbours for going on ‘two runs a day’ during the coronavirus lockdown, according to a British police force.

Northamptonshire police say they have had a surge in calls from people snitching on their neighbours for “going out for a second run”.

Indy 100 reports: Government lockdown rules allow people to leave their homes to take one form of exercise a day. And Nick Adderley, from Northamptonshire Police, has told the BBC that during this overstretched and stressful time his force has received “dozens and dozens” of calls about people allegedly ignoring the order.

Police now have the
powers to fine anyone found to be flouting the law. But, to be honest,
aren’t there better uses of everyone’s time? Such as dispersing big
groups and, you know, dealing with serious crimes?

Adderley said:

We are getting calls from people who say ‘I think my
neighbour is going out on a second run – I want you to come and arrest
them’

We have had dozens and dozens of these calls.

To
make matters even more ridiculous, the force has also been getting
reports from people whose neighbours are gathering in their back
gardens.

We won’t have police officers crashing through garden
fences to check the ID of everyone who is there to see whether they
live at the house or whether they should be self-isolating.

We wouldn’t want to discourage people from making us
aware, but we have to set expectations. If people think we will be
descending on these houses with blue lights, then we won’t.

But be under no illusion, we will be using these powers if necessary.

Ash Tuckley, who leads the force’s control room stressed the “need to exercise caution”. Pardon the pun.

One man who’s absolutely not happy about this news is Nigel Farage. He compared the UK to “east Germany” after learning the news that people were calling the police over these matters.
