THIS is how you can report your neighbours for breaking lockdown - according to Sussex Police.

The force is encouraging residents to report possible breaches of coronavirus measures.

At the start of the month, the Prime Minister announced a second national lockdown that forced pubs, restaurants, gyms and hairdressers to shut.

However, this time around, many business owners, as well as anti-lockdown protesters, have refused to abide by the rules.

The Argus: Rule breakers can be fined up to £10,000Rule breakers can be fined up to £10,000

To combat the rule-breakers, Sussex Police have allowed residents to report a potential breach online.

The website reads: "Only report something if you think there is a serious breach of the rules like a large gathering of people obviously from lots of different households."

Those concerned are asked to provide the location of the breach, along with the number of people, if any, are there.

Residents can report an opened business, someone who isn't self-isolation or a large gathering.

The new rule means people cannot indoors with family or friends unless they are part of your household - meaning the people you live with – or a support bubble.

A support bubble is where a household with one adult joins with another household. Households in that support bubble can still visit each other, stay overnight, and visit outdoor public places together.

Residents can exercise or visit outdoor public places with the people they live with, their support bubble, or 1 person from another household.

Fines for anyone caught in breach of lockdown rules on household mixing will start at £200.

However, if someone is found to have put someone else in danger by leaving quarantine early, you could face a fine of £4,000 for a first offence.

They may also be fined £1,000 if they have tested positive and have given false information about your close contacts to NHS Test and Trace.
