Suffolk police have asked members of the public not to call 999 about lockdown.
The force urged members of the public to keep the emergency line clear after the address from Prime Minister Boris Johnson last night in which he laid out a stricter set of restrictions in order to combat the coronavirus.
In a tweet after the address from Mr Johnson last night police urged members of the public not to call 999 about the situation.
“We recognise the potentially unsettling impact of the Prime Minister’s address to the nation tonight,” said the force.
“However, please help us to help you by remembering 999 is for emergency calls only.
“For clarification about what the PM has said, go to gov.uk.”
