Police have been asked to step in to stop groups of people using the grounds of Ottery St Mary Football Club, in defiance of the coronavirus lockdown.
The Government rules allow people to go outside for exercise, but forbid gatherings of more than two people in public, unless they are from the same household.
The club said it has been receiving daily reports of people using the grounds ‘in numbers’, both adults and children, and has made an urgent plea on Facebook for local residents to keep to the rules and stay away.
The post says: “The volunteers who run the club have their own families to look after during this current climate, and yet are having to leave them to attend the club every day to ask people to leave the grounds.
“We therefore have requested that the PCSO make regular visits to the club and take any appropriate action.
