WEYMOUTH and Portland Police are warning parents to ensure their children are not breaking lockdown restrictions.

Officers had to break up several large groups yesterday.

A spokesman for Weymouth and Portland Police said: "We have been out patrolling our local hot spot areas.

"We have seen large groups of youths congregating together, on one occasion a group have lit a fire which fortunately did not cause any damage.

"Please remind your children that congregating outside of school bubbles is not permitted."
