I am amazed by the article in Tuesday's (28/04) Echo 'Warning as drivers go to monument'.

The Dorset Police advice against driving to Maiden Castle for exercise. The attached aerial photo shows barely four cars in the car park, it doesn't say they came from out of the county.

They quote the spirit of the current situation is being flouted but that is a very hard interpretation.

Why not keep the public on side and stop being so petty with their 'advice'?

I understand the need for visitors from further afield being turned back from visiting tourist hotspots such as Lulworth.

But a few local people finding a new place to exercise which is going to maintain their mental health is essential in these difficult times.

In my mind moderation is the key to maintain the goodwill of the public.
