A man who drove from London to Derbyshire to collect a wardrobe claimed he had “forgotten about lockdown”, police said.

Officers came across a van in the village of Repton on Saturday evening.

They approached the driver, who told them he had come from London to pick up some second-hand furniture and admitted the trip was not essential.

Derbyshire Police handed him a £200 fine for breaking lockdown rules.
