Nottinghamshire Police have thanked local residents for abiding by new social-distancing rules.
The force has thanked Nottingham’s residents and workers for having “used their common sense” to not head in the city centre and other social venues across the county last night to help tackle coronavirus.
The government earlier this month published guidance for everyone including taking social distancing measures to help reduce the transmission of Coronavirus.
Nottinghamshire Police’s Superintendent Ian Roberts said earlier today: “It’s obviously very strange times for everyone around the world currently, but I would like to praise the Nottinghamshire public who stayed away from city and town centres last night.
“It’s very strange to see such empty streets, but these measures and guidance are in place to help protect us all and it’s important that we and our emergency service partners get the support from all sections of our communities over the coming weeks.
“Please be assured that our officers will continue to be visible and accessible when required.
“Thanks to everyone for using your common sense and long may it continue to ensure we tackle the virus.”
