UK's Derbyshire police enforce lockdown via drones


After the British government announced a national lockdown, Derbyshire Police used drones to capture footage of people rambling, walking their dogs, and taking photos in the Peak District. The move was widely criticised as heavy-handed and counter-productive; however, the government followed up by saying that people should stay near their homes for exercise and not travel unnecessarily and granting police new powers to enforce the lockdown.
