    So lets say you dont drive 2 miles or so to a local trail. If you live in a town or city and run from your house, you will be coming across far more people than you would at the petrol station from filling up slightly earlier.

    You say do what youre asked to do but that still isnt clear to me. The latest guidance still doesnt seem to prohibit going in your car. It says you should stay local and use open spaces near to your home. If you are only driving a couple of miles arent you staying locally?

    Whilst reasonable , I have no idea whether it is considered compliant, or what else I am supposed to do?

    The world is grey, not black and white for some of our situations.
    Im shopping once a week, running from home and doing nothing else, it isnt up to me but I do know that the chasing of others who arent following the spirit of the rules is causing the Police endless hassle, I do agree that what can and cant be done hasnt been put across clearly and needs clarifying by the government

    Cumbria Police are telling people that travelling in a car to exercise away from home is not acceptable, surely better that we follow the guidance so that we can do limited things than being totally locked down and unable to do anything

    I run 3 times a week and shop three time’s a week, because I can only buy milk one container a time.
    ( I can’t see how that rule helps)
    I run when I shop. I’ve also been shopping for neighbours on lock down. I drive one extra mile to run when already in the car for shopping.

    I agree there it’s hard with restrictions on what you can buy, three of us in the house, all vegetarians, we drink enough milk to warrant having our own cow but we’re having to manage, I noticed that one of the local farms had put a sign up on the footpath through their land saying footpath closed and people should respect this, the Police are taking the pragmatic approach and are only using the heavy hand if people don’t listen. I do dread to think what would happen if we had another major Foot and Mouth outbreak, the Lake District is a very different place now to what it was 20 years ago with far greater visitor numbers, and as recent events have shown, most who would give a toss if we had an outbreak.

    One of the ironies of foot and mouth is how farmers would rant at ramblers to obey the code, and blame them, whilst they were the main cause of propagation with hundreds of illegal animal movements at night. So unless farmers have changed their ways, the ramblers would not make a jot of differences.

    Ps we are veggies, and normally use milk by the gallon.

    I drink raw jersey milk that I pick up from a farm 4 miles away. I very rarely made a special journey but usually picked it up either on the way to or returning from taking my son to his swimming sessions in Buxton.
    Those have obviously stopped.
    On such visits I occasionally chatted to a Sikh bloke who made weekly visits from Derby and picked up a carload of the stuff for his family and friends, a round trip of about 60 miles.
    I've no idea if he is still going.
    Am I allowed to divert a few miles to go there on the way from my Aldi shop?

    I'd like to continue to support the farmer, and as I understand it, due to the status of raw milk it cannot be sold in shops and only from the farm gate.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog
