Large groups of people gathered at Ruislip Lido and were captured breaking social distancing restrictions.

MPS Hillingdon have warned that large groups of visitors to Ruislip Lido today (May 24) have taken advantage of the hot weather this Bank Holiday.

In a picture shared by the police force, flocks of people were seen close together and not keeping a two-metre distance.

MPS Hillingdon asked visitors to “please use common sense when it comes to social distancing”.

Today temperatures reached 25°C around Harrow and Ruislip, meaning many were tempted to take advantage of the weather.

Earlier this week, other families across the country were captured flocking to England’s beaches such as Southend.
