Police have urged people not to drive to the Lincolnshire coast to take exercise.
It comes after details of a document - previously sent to police forces across the UK - were made public.
The document - entitled "what constitutes a reasonable excuse to leave the place where you live" - was issued by the National Police Chiefs' Council and the College of Policing,
On exercise, it states driving to the countryside for a walk is "reasonable" if "far more time" is spent walking than driving.Quote Message: If you don't need to travel in your car to go for a walk, because you can walk from your house, then actually don't do that.. There is opportunity for the majority of our communities in the county to go from their home address or very close to their home address without the need to travel half an hour to the coast". from Jason Harwin Deputy Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police

Ms Clayton, a midwife who lives in Sheffield, said she had been "devastated" by the theft.
"It left me with no car and stuck 30-miles away from my home in Sheffield. I was stressing, not just about getting to and from work, but to be able to do the food shop and look after my family.
"As if life isn't difficult enough for key workers right now."
However she said a garage owner who heard about the theft had given her a courtesy car while her own was being repaired.
"I just want to say thank you to everyone who has offered help," she said.
"The level of support I have received has been incredible and my faith in humanity completely restored."
One man has been charged with theft while another had been arrested and bailed.
