They are reminding drivers of the message to stay at home during the coronavirus crisis.

A police checkpoint was seen in Devon today, where officers quizzed drivers on whether their journeys were “essential”.

North Yorkshire Police Assistant Chief Constable Mike Walker said: “The new and significant restrictions announced by the Prime Minister on Monday evening spell out very clearly what each and every one of us must do to save lives. The message is clear and the warning stark. Stay at home, save lives.

“These are the lives of the people we know and love. Our partners, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, grandparents.

“You may never be in such a position again where your simple actions will lead directly to saving lives.”

The force said the checkpoints will be unannounced and could appear anywhere any time.
