British households have been cautioned against flouting the #StayHome measure of the government, even as the country expects a sunny May.
The Police urged Britons to adhere to the measure in a bid to avoid putting pressure on healthcare workers in the fight against the coronavirus.
This comes after the Police in London admitted they were struggling to stop people gathering in parks amid the fine weather.
A Hackney Police statement, posted on its official Twitter page alongside an image believed to be of London Fields, said: “Sadly we’re fighting a losing battle in the parks today.
“Literally hundreds of people sitting having pizza, beers, wines. As always a big thank you to those that are observing the guidelines.”
Temperatures are set to reach 26C (78.8F) in parts of the UK on Saturday in what is promising to be the hottest day of the year so far – with London and the South East expected to be hotter than Ibiza and St Tropez.
This has fuelled fears that the government’s stay-at-home advice will not be followed, with Britons flocking to parks and beaches for days out.
