“The risk this illegal activity has to other people is significant, we will not tolerate these continued efforts to break the law and will continue to hold operations to target people committing these offences.”
Meanwhile, Cllr Philippa Marsden, leader of Caerphilly County Borough Council, said she was “saddened” to hear about people being intimidated while out on their daily exercise.
Cllr Marsden said: “This is particularly upsetting during this period of national emergency, where our countryside is offering the opportunity for both exercise and solace for many residents.
“These spaces are open for all residents to use but I’d like to remind everyone who uses them to do so with respect for the landscape, the law and other users.”
Latest information on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Most cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) seem to be mild.
Coronavirus is a viral disease that can cause coughing, fever and difficulty breathing. It can be more severe in older people, those with weakened immune systems and some long-term conditions like diabetes or cancer.
Why we do what we do.
For the last ten years, Caerphilly Observer has provided an award-winning, balanced, and independent news service to the people of Caerphilly County Borough.
We believe the public should be informed about their community, coherently and with context.
However, running a professional news service comes at a financial cost.
Caerphilly Observer is predominantly funded through advertising, and while this has supported us in the past, and continues to do so, we are looking to raise funding through other means.
While the print edition of Caerphilly Observer will still be free to pick up from more than 100 outlets across the county borough, we know this isn’t convenient for some readers.
For just £40 a year, readers will be able to get their copy of Caerphilly Observer posted out to them. Around £25 of this will go towards the cost of the postage, while the remaining £15 will go towards funding and developing our news service.
