Julia Mulligan hits out at the way visitors are treating the community

  • Visitors to North Yorkshire have been told that some of their actions are just not on.
  • The Police Fire and Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan, says officers will use all their powers to crack down on anti-social behaviour like littering and blocking country lanes with cars. 
  • She was responding to residents concerns as lockdown retrictions are relaxed further during a Youtube Question and Answer session.

Leaders of North Yorkshire’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic have taken part in another live update on the work they are doing.

North Yorkshire's Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan, has hit out at the way visitors are treating the community.

LISTEN TO JULIA MULLIGAN ON STRAY FM:

She says it's really disappointing that we have seen scenes of litter and people using public areas as toliets.

She says it's just not on and the police will use the full force of the law to crack down and try and reassure local people.

Other main points from Tuesday's Youtube Question and Answer session.

The Assistant Chief Constable of North Yorkshire, Mike Walker, says some of the behaviour he has seen over the weekend has been lewd.  He says some visitors really frighten local people.

The Chief Executive of North Yorkshire County council, Richard Flinton, says that we need a few more days yet before we can say that we have reached the peak in all parts of the county.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue says it's having problems with access to incidents. This is because of people parking alongside roads and streets without thinking of leaving room for emergency services.

Police have detected an increase in extremely high speeds during lockdown - double the speed limit in some 30mph communities and up to 133mph on main roads. 

They're continuing to deploy camera vans to villages and towns to prevent fatalities.
