Despite the fact the country is on lockdown, climbers have been disturbing birds of prey with their activity. 

Weymouth and Portland Police received reports yesterday that a peregrine falcon nest had been disturbed by climbers and someone flying a drone - despite the clear signage in the area.

This is an offence under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

A spokesman said: "We will look to prosecute any persons found ignoring the signage."

It wasn't the only example of people ignoring the Government's instruction to stay at home.

Dorset Police's Rural Crime Team said there were several incidents yesterday, including officers having to move people on from skate parks in Sherborne. 

"Ask yourself, is your journey essential?"said a spokesman.
