PEOPLE are still motoring to Slemish Mountain to go for walks, Mid & East Antrim Borough Council said tonight.
In a social media post, the Council said: ‘People are still driving to Slemish to go for a walk. This is NOT essential travel. Please stop.
‘In conjunction with the local community, Council made the decision to close the car park at Slemish.
‘Please stay at home unless you need to leave your home for an essential reason. Stay At Home.’
The walkers came under fire from the public.
One woman said: “Wise up people…stop being so flipping selfish!!!!!!”
A man said on social media: “Come on folks stay at home the only way of beating this.”
