Richard Leafe, chief executive of the Lake District National Park Authority added:
“We welcome every visitor to their national park, especially those here for the first time. I’m saddened by the behaviour of some during the past few weeks. Leaving litter, cutting down trees and blocking gates affects real people, including volunteers, who selflessly give their time to help look after this special place. So I’m urging people to stop and think before they visit: plan ahead to avoid the busy spots using saferlakes.co.uk, take all your litter away with you, stick to social distancing and show the respect and love for the Lake District that it deserves – then we can all look forward to enjoying the national park this summer.”
