Visiting North Yorkshire (VNY) have received reports from their members in the Dales and around Ryedale to say that huge numbers of people have descended on the areas. Hawes have reported a vast number of motor bikers gathering around nearby, and beauty spots in Ryedale have seen a huge number of visitors. As all facilities (including toilets) are closed this is causing a major issue and stress for the local residents.

Although lock down has been eased a little this should not be an excuse to travel big distances to go and exercise or meet up with a group of friends.
