Some of the defendants were caught not wearing a mask.

More than 20 people from the north of the county who refused to follow strict Covid lockdown laws have been given fines.

The defendants were the latest to be convicted after violating emergency rules - which were designed to slow the spread of coronavirus - between January and April.

Many of them were punished after failing to stick to the laws in January or February, at a time when many thousands died as the virus spiraled out of control.
