Coronavirus lockdown spurs police in England to dye 'Blue Lagoon' black to deter Instagrammers

Recommended Posts

In the age of social distancing due to the coronavirus, authorities in England have dumped black dye into a picturesque bright blue lagoon to stop Instagrammers from gathering to snap pictures.


The Derbyshire Police said Wednesday that despite instructions by officials in the U.K. to stay home to slow the spread of COVID-19, people were still congregating at a former quarry known as the "Blue Lagoon" in Harpur Hill, located near Buxton. 
"No doubt this is due to the picturesque location and the lovely weather (for once!) in Buxton," police said on Facebook. "However, the location is dangerous and this type of gathering is in contravention of the current instruction of the UK Government."


The department shared photos of the bright blue water on Facebook, showing the moments before and after the black dye was added: "to make the water look less appealing."


In the images, two officers in full white protective suits and face masks can be seen walking and adding the dye to the pool.


"The photos below show our efforts this morning...and yes we did laugh at PC Parkinson and PCSO Small in the white suits!!" the department said, adding: "Please stay at home."
