Nearly 200 calls were received by Cambridgeshire police over the weekend relating to Covid breaches.
The tally of 198 was 10 per cent up on the previous weekend.
A police spokesperson said many of the calls were around groups gathering in open spaces including Jesus Green in Cambridge.
Other groups were spoken to at Brampton memorial fields and Fulbridge Recreation Ground in Peterborough “to name a few” said the spokesperson.
“While it’s lovely to see some sunshine, please don’t be tempted to break the guidelines.
We are all in this together and we all have a responsibility to follow the rules.
"As always, thank you to everyone playing their part and helping save lives.”
