Police warn people to stop using Leeds Skelton Lake services as a 'loophole' to meet up
Police have warned people to stop using the Leeds Skelton Lane services as a 'loophole' to meet up.
Under current Covid guidelines, people are able to meet one other person outdoors in their local area.
However, officers have found groups using the service station, which is off Junction 45 of the M1, to congregate.
Mounted police officers dealt with several groups who were breaking lockdown laws on Saturday, March 20.
The force said that officers will continue to enforce the Covid regulations there today (Sunday 21).
A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: "Can I just remind people that Skelton Lake services is not a place where groups can meet up
"There is no "LOOP HOLE" that people can use.
"Yesterday our mounted Police team were there enforcing the COVID rules.
"Several people were dealt with.
"We have stopped large and small groups who seem to think the services are ok to meet,.
"This is NOT the case.
"We will be down again today to monitor/enforce the COVID regulations."
