Covid-19: Website to report lockdown breaches crashes in hours

From Checkpoint, 5:47 pm on 30 March 2020

A police website for reporting suspected lockdown breaches was so overrun with complaints it crashed just hours after being launched.

If you suspect a business or individual is breaching the Covid-19 level four isolation rules you can now head online to fill out a report.

The new service, launched on Sunday, received more than 4,000 reports in its first 24 hours. Anneke Smith reports.
