Hull is set for a warm Easter weekend and many will be tempted to spend their time off soaking up the sun.

But almost three weeks after the coronavirus lockdown began, people are being warned that the rules remain the same and they should only leave their home if essential. You can read the 13 reasons why you can leave your home in full here.

The Met Office says the mercury could hit 21C in Hull on Saturday and Humberside Police have told people that they should be staying at home despite the rising temperatures.

Humberside Police tweeted on Friday morning: "It’s going to be a warm one this Easter bank holiday weekend and our @HumPolSpecials are supporting our local Neighbourhood Policing Teams by carrying out patrols across the Humberside Force area in your communities! #StayHomeSaveLives."

Roads policing officers will also be patrolling country roads to ensure motorcyclists are not out enjoying a ride, which Humberside Police said would not be classed as an "essential journey".

Last weekend, Health Secretary Matt Hancock warned people that sunbathing is also against social distancing guidelines and warned that the lockdown could become stricter if people flout the rules.

It came after sun-worshippers were spotted soaking up the sun in parks in London, with many being moved on by police.

Earlier this week Dominic Raab - who is standing in for Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is being treated in hospital after his Covid-19 diagnosis, said people must stay at home.

“Our number one and overriding focus right now is on conveying the key message which is that everyone needs to keep adhering to this guidance," he said.

“There is a long Easter bank holiday weekend coming up, warm weather and we understand people are making big sacrifices to follow this guidance.

“It is helping, it is contributing to our ability to tackle the coronavirus.

“The worst thing now would be to take our foot off the peddle, to ease up on that and risk losing the gains that have been made.

“It is absolutely critical that people keep up that discipline and the vast majority will. We hope everyone will follow that example.”
