Bude Police issue dispersal order

From Bude Police:


After reports of large gatherings on the sand dunes at Summerleaze beach, Bude, on Friday 29th May 2020, and the substantial litter and mess left behind, we have taken the decision to place a dispersal order for 48 hours under section 35 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.


  • This is in place for 48 hours and will allow Officers to disperse anyone likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress by their actions or behaviour in Bude Town and Beaches.


If dispersed persons return to the area within the 48 hours, they will be liable to arrest and prosecution.


This is obviously in conjunction with the current Covid-19 legislation where no more than 2 people  should congregate.
