Statement: Visit to Durham by Dominic Cummings during lockdown   

 Acting Durham Police, Crime and Victims’ Commissioner, Steve White said: “In relation to the incident where Dominic Cummings visited Durham during lockdown Durham Constabulary acted appropriately.  Given the whole ethos of the guidance and regulations issued from the Government was to reduce the spread, regardless of reason, by travelling to County Durham when known to be infected was most unwise.  To beat this crisis we need to be selfless as millions have been.  The response by the people of County Durham and Darlington have been exemplary, which makes this most frustrating and concerning.”

“Incidents such as this do not help, and I can appreciate that the longer this goes on the harder it gets, but I encourage the people of County Durham and Darlington to keep up the outstanding effort seen so far by using common sense when following the guidance to stay alert and continue to social distance.”
