SIR – Matt Hancock the health secretary has said it, countless articles in the media have said it, but according to the Hampshire police force they’re all wrong!
Having got totally bored with going round the same streets every day my wife and I decided to travel 13 minutes by car to Keyhaven for a walk in different surroundings.
However, we were stopped by a policeman on a bike who was pleasant enough but explained what we were doing was definitely against the current regulations.
He admitted all the comments and articles were confusing the issue but, sorry, we absolutely could not drive a short distance for a long walk.
So the lead article in this week’s A&T yet again highlights the confusion, whilst Patrick Hopper in the letters column (Letters, 24th April) will still have to walk his dog round the streets even if the Forest car parks are opened.
Perhaps Hampshire police might like to comment.
