PEOPLE are being reminded to stay home and not to travel over the Easter weekend.

PCSO Sam Bushen took to Facebook to praise the people of Taunton for adhering to the government's coronavirus guidelines.

He posted a video of himself patrolling areas of the county town including Vivary Park, Long Run Meadow, Bishop's Hull, Galmington and towards Trull.

In the footage, he says: "It's really good to see everyone appears to be social distancing, creating that distance.

"Those people we have seen have been continuing to move, not lingering, sitting on any park benches, anything like that, areas where you could transfer that virus."

He said people are only going into town for essential items.

He concluded by pleading with people to stay home over the Easter weekend and not to travel unecessarily.
