Yes, I believe they have been stopping people on the Coldstream and Norham bridges and asking the purpose of their journeys. Seems crazy north northumberland has one of the most severe lock downs when just over the border it is as relaxed as it gets. I think Scottish Borders is about 30 per 100,000 and I doubt North Northumberland is any higher.
I have wondered about restrictions on the border as so many people in the far north of northumberland use the border towns as their local main towns, many even use scottish health services.
Anyway - what did you make of the new 20mph speed limits, it is even 20 all the way through Coldstream - just wonderful far more civilised.
