Woking Police issue dispersal orders to stop people gathering during coronavirus outbreak

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 2:13pm 27th March 2020.

Surrey Police have issued dispersal orders in several places as they are given new powers because of the coronavirus outbreak. 

The new legislation means officers can move groups of three or more on and direct them to return to their homes, and issue fines if necessary.

Woking Police say they are experiencing a lot of youths gathering particularly in West Byfleet and Walton Court despite new rules to stay home. 

Officers urged parents to keep their children at home on a post on Facebook: 

"They should be practicing social distancing at home. their actions are antisocial and non-compliant with Government direction and they pose risk to the vulnerable within the community as well as themselves.

"Residents if you see any of these gatherings please let police know by ringing 101.

"Parents please take responsibility and keep your child at home!"

Police have now issued dispersal orders under the Anti-social behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014for:

  • Woking Town Centre,
  • West Byfleet,
  • Walton Court in Maybury.

These will be in place with immediate effect until 27 July 2020, during the hours of 0700 until 0600 daily.
