More guidance issued by police around people visiting Peak District during lockdown

Officers say while we have this fantastic space in our county, right now is not the time to be using it. The force are urging you to follow the government guidelines and take daily exercise locally to your home.

A statement from Derbyshire Police on Twitter said: "We’re seeing a lot of confusion over whether people are allowed to travel to the Peaks to undertake daily exercise while the government are asking us to stay at home. While we have this fantastic space in our county, right now is not the time to be using it.

"Daily exercise should be taken locally to your home. Under government guidance all travel is limited to essential travel only. This is to help ensure that our emergency services aren’t put under even more pressure during this time.

"Should you trip, fall or have a road traffic accident while you are travelling to, or are out in the Peaks, then this will add additional pressure to an already stretched service.

"The safety and wellbeing of you, the residents of our beautiful county, is our priority and these measures are being put in place to ensure that you are kept safe. If you need advice on how to look after your wellbeing at home during this time visit the government website
