Police stopped and fined a father of two for breaking coronavirus lockdown laws to make a 240-mile round trip from Nottingham to London to "buy bread".
The reason? It was reportedly £1 cheaper in the UK’s capital city.
It sounds like the man couldn’t ~wheat~ for the price of bread to drop in his local area.
Reporting the news on Twitter, Leicestershire Roads Policing Unit wrote on Sunday:
The man received two fixed penalty notices – one for breaking lockdown laws and one for speeding. The first comes with a £60 fee, while the second will be decided by a court.
The response to the incident was mixed and people had a lot of thoughts:
The distance between Nottingham and London is around 120 miles.
Using a fuel calculator, indy100 confirmed the man would’ve had to have spent at least £33.80 just on petrol for the round trip.
If you add a £60 fine, that’s a lot of dough just for one loaf.
