Police can order members of the public to go home, leave an area, have the power to disperse a group, using “reasonable force, if necessary” and can make arrests if someone refuses to comply.

Those who ignore the tougher restrictions on movement could be hit with a £60 fine initially - reduced to £30 if paid within 14 days - and another for £120 for a second offence.

Those who do not pay could be taken to court and risk facing costs for unlimited fines. Refusing to provide a name and address to avoid being given a fine is an arrestable offence.

Warnings issued

”We will continue to encourage and support our communities to comply with the restrictions, but it's right that our officers are now able to enforce against those who disregard these measures and put others at risk.“
