Derbyshire police have defended using a drone to shame people into staying away from a national park during the lockdown. The force tweeted footage taken near Curbar Edge in the Peak District, insisting members of the public should not be driving there to walk their dogs or take photographs. 'It's not Big Brother,' a spokesman said. 'It's just to illustrate the fact that people are going out and making these journeys against the government's rules.'

So walking in a isolated area is wrong, but me travelling over an hour on public transport and having to work in a crowded work space is perfectly fine?!?!
You're taking the piss!

Using tax payer money to record people isolated in the middle of nowhere with a drone. "Not Essential."

The Government allows one piece of exercise a day - surely driving to a remote spot and keeping well away from others is much better than walking urban streets and in parks.

People NEED walks and isolation like this. It is a coping mechanism.

Is this serious, those people are definitely social distancing and getting exercise, concentrate on real news please.

Driving miles to avoid taking exercise in a busy town centre or housing estate seems very sensible to me.

This is a bit rediculous, go to the towns please and use the drone there and stop the real offenders.
