With warm weather expected to shine over the capital this weekend, Metropolitan Police have issued a statement pleading for members of the public to not be tempted to risk going out.
UK sun seekers aren't usually shy in hitting the beaches, parks and open spaces to catch a few rays and enjoy the heat, but with the deadly Covid-19 pandemic and strict lockdown in place, there's no time like now to practice discipline.
The Metropolitan Police have said: "The weather is set to be warmer in London this weekend. Please don't be tempted to go out and enjoy the weather, follow the rules put in place by the Government."
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Stuart Bundy said: "It's really important for people to stay at home and listen to the advice that is coming out from the government and from those professionals in the health service.
"If our officers see someone on the street who shouldn't be there, they are not going to automatically arrest them.
"Our job is to keep people safe and we're going to talk to people like we always have done and we always will do.
"We will explain things and only ever, as a last resort, will we take any form of enforcement."
