Mum Drives 90 Minutes To Beach Then Complains About Others Doing The Same

Mum Drives 90 Minutes To Beach Then Complains About Others Doing The Same

A family who drove for an hour-and-a-half to go to the beach say they were surprised by how many people were there.

Jane Peacock and her family travelled to Durdle Door in Dorset this weekend, which is allowed under new rules from Boris Johnson.

However, when the family arrived they found they weren't the only ones who had decided to go to the seaside that day with around 2,500 also making the most of the nice weather.

Jane and daughter Ellie were interviewed by the BBC, with Ellie saying: "It's nice to get out of quarantine but I think it's going to peak again because everyone's going to go mad and go anywhere they can."

Jane added: "It's lovely to get out but I'm quite shocked as to how many people are here and to how they are not paying attention to the social distancing.

"I find that quite annoying to be honest. It's like being in Tesco."

Posting on Twitter, one person said: "This Peacock family are part of the problem. Nobody drives that long to go there. Should be 30 mins tops from your home. They could go through two counties in that time."

Another added: "Sorry Peacock family, I live a five minute walk from the beach where I live, drop me a dm next time you want to come visit and I'll drive the 1.5 hours to your house just to even things up."

Last weekend, a number of local councils urged visitors to stay away to help ensure social distancing.

Posting on Twitter, Blackpool's tourism body - which has changed the name of its profile page from Visit Blackpool to Do Not Visit Blackpool - wrote: "Ahead of this weekend, we would like to encourage our visitors not to drive to Blackpool for a day trip.

"We can't wait for our grand re-opening when you can once again enjoy all that Blackpool has to offer but, for now, please stay local for your exercise if possible."

While the Derbyshire Dales tweeted to say: "We appealed to visitors to stay away but our usual hotspots are busy. We also made it clear most facilities - including toilets - remain closed.

"Sadly, we're getting reports of people using streets as a toilet. Don't. #RespectProtect our communities."
