Lancashire Police today have posted a subtle post warning people not to phone them and to leave the telephone lines clear for emergencies today as the new rule for more than 6 people gathering comes into place.

Lancashire Police stated “Help us to be there when you need us, by not calling us if you don’t.”
They tried to guide Fylde people into reporting their neighbours via the online method by stating
“Remember, you can report a breach of #Covid regulations online at http://orlo.uk/aMN9D Let’s keep our phone lines free for those that need us in an emergency! “
However, the general consensus amongst the local people is that this new rule will be generally ignored as did the previous lockdown rules where people flocked to Lytham Green in their droves and flouted any social distancing rules.
