A driver has been fined twice after ignoring police demands to abandon a 400-mile round trip from Edinburgh to Wigan to buy a puppy.
Road policing officers in Cumbria initially stopped the motorist near Kendal and slapped him with a fixed penalty notice as he made the journey to Lancashire in breach of lock down guidelines before ordering him to return home.
However, the Audi driver ignored that instruction & minutes later police pulled him over again to issue a second fine.
The motorist reportedly informed officers he was driving just over 200 miles from his home in the capital to purchase the dog.
A police car then accompanied the driver on the return trip up the M6 and back over the border.
