Offenders will be dealt with firmly if they do not follow Boris Johnson’s lockdown orders, Herts police have confirmed.

County police and crime commissioner David Lloyd is calling on the public to support his officers over the next few weeks.

He said that the constabulary remains fully operational and prepared and that the police have his backing to use their new powers if needed.

He added: “These are powers that nobody wanted to take on, but the situation is grave and they are necessary to ensure that people are kept safe and that as few people die as possible.

“It is vital that we all take the government advice and ensure that the police never have to use their new powers in Hertfordshire.
