Last weekend saw a significant amount of people drive to local hotspots like the Lake District to go for a walk in the sun.
However, these trips have now been deemed unnecessary, leading to Cumrbia Police closing the lakes.
Temporary Chief Superintendent Rob O’Connor said: “My message is really simple, the Lake District is closed.
“Pubs, cafes and restaurants are closed, and we do not want to see people travelling to the Lakes in caravans and camper vans or driving many miles in their cars to go walking on the fells.
