Travel restrictions mean that there are incredibly limited reasons for leaving your local area.

As one Surbiton man found out - buying Cannabis is not one of them.

Surrey Police caught the man travelling by train from Surbiton to Guildford in order to buy the illegal drug.

This is a journey of 20 miles or 35 minutes on South Western Rail.

The man was issued a fixed penalty notice (or fine) of £200 when he was discovered by police.

Surrey Police say they have given out around 100 COVID related fines since the start of 2021.

Another was given to a man who was driving erratically in Walton - having travelled from Buckinghamshire.

Chief Inspector Dan Guiterrez said: "We understand the past year has been incredibly difficult for everyone but the virus is still very much here".
