The couple were discovered sleeping in their car on a beach in Falmouth, Cornwall, by a beach and attractions patrol officer on the morning of April 25.
A document check revealed that the couple lived in Kent, and neither had a driver’s license or any insurance for their car.
The officer who found the couple confiscated the vehicle and charged them with willfully violating travel restrictions, which are still in effect across the country.
Adrian Leisk, Commander of the Cornwall Patrol, commended the officer’s actions, and said his team is still struggling to deal with the selfishness of a few individuals.
“Important message to those who still think it is a good idea to ignore government advice: you will be fined and forced to go home. And in these cases, we will confiscate your vehicle,” Mr. Leisk said.
Police in Devon and Cornwall counties say they have fined nearly 300 people for violating travel restrictions in the past 10 days as of April 25.
The force said the penalties were seen as “last resort”, and mainly related to cases of leaving the house but not for essential reasons.
Earlier, a man from north Yorkshire was fined by police for voluntarily driving to the ruins of Bolton Abbey just to take pictures of the stars in the sky on the evening of April 24.
