Angry locals in towns and villages across the UK have highlighted that second home owners leave and return to their city properties amid the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Londoners and people living in big cities across the UK are flocking to the sea and their second homes to escape the virus, attracting the anger of the locals.
Now, furious locals in St Ives, Cornwall have scribbled messages on the beach asking the owners of a second home to leave.
An even more furious sign appeared in Bala, north Wales, which says “Go home to rats”.
The government urged people not to go to the countryside or vacation homes, fearing that the virus would spread across the nation.
However, despite their demands, the government commands and Boris Johnson imposes a blockade across the UK, the second murders remain rebellious and continue to plummet in droves.

Although the second murders remain rebellious, the local anger towards the mass exodus is clear
The residents of St Ives in Cornwall scribbled a series of messages on the sand on the beach asking tourists to return home.
Two messages read “Locals only”, while another said “Tourists, please go home”.
In Bala, the owners of the second house were confronted with mice in one sign while another message, scrawled on the side of a car, read “Go home idiots”.
Signs also appeared on a roundabout in Porthcawl, South Wales, asking people to turn around.
Meanwhile, a roadside sign in Pembrokeshire also urged non-locals to return home, while a sign in North Wales said, “Snowdonia is closed. Fuck you at home!
However, second home owners remain rebellious in the face of intense criticism.
One of these is Alice Townsend, 52, a physiotherapist who moved to her second home in Northumberland, south London, with her husband and three children.
He said to the Times: ‘We are in the middle of nowhere here. We thought that with three children and two dogs it made sense. We can be out and not infect anyone else.
“I understand that some people may see him as selfish but we thought it was practical.”
A second homeowner, from western London, decided to move to her Suffolk cottage with her husband as soon as rumors of a blockade began.

She insisted that she and her husband did not feel any backlash, despite the fury on social media.
The woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, added: ‘We weekends have our backlash. Like the rest of the country, we are tired of receiving ambiguous advice that changes day by day and above all we resent saying that we should not go to our house, where we pay municipal taxes, like any other resident. ‘
Henry Sherwood, a property buying agent from South West London who moved to his second home in Wantage, Oxfordshire, also insists that he has not faced any hostility to his move.
However, people across the country remain furious at Londoners and people from big cities fleeing to the countryside.
Socialites are fleeing London and heading to the country to enjoy isolation in idyllic rural areas (pictured Lottie Moss, who was photographed leaving the capital on Wednesday and is now relaxing in a countryside retreat)
A social media user commented: ‘If Londoners and residents of Middle England could kindly keep away from their second homes in Suffolk and Norfolk, it would be welcome.
‘Stop spreading the virus. You don’t have to be here.
Another angry person wrote: ‘Why is it always London? Many wealthy Londoners now in their second homes, or on vacation in Wales, Cornwall. Places with very few resources. Selfish lot. “
Another added: ‘Our village in the Cotswolds was full of Londoners fleeing the city.
‘In 10 years we have never seen him so busy. People come to their second homes, bringing their friend.
Last night Boris Johnson plunged the UK into the coronavirus block, ordering the closure of all stores selling non-essential goods, as well as playgrounds and churches
“Irresponsible idiots, who should be locked up to save the rest of us from them.”
Among those who left their London homes to isolate themselves elsewhere was Kate Moss’s little sister Lottie.
The socialite and the model were taken leaving her home in London on Wednesday last week, and she has since shared photos on her Instagram page while collecting flowers in a campaign.
He revealed that he is currently “with the family” in the place earlier today.
Meanwhile influencer and fashion blogger Lizzy Hadfield also revealed that she left London for her native Yorkshire on the weekend.
He posted the photos online while enjoying a country walk on Ilkley Moor in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic across the country.
It comes when the 66 million Britons are starting a new life in the coronavirus block today after Boris Johnson ordered the immediate closure of all non-essential stores and threatened people with fines or even arrested if they “don’t stay home”.
The arrest of the Prime Minister will last for at least three weeks and the new UK state of emergency is unprecedented in modern history.
Meetings of more than two will be banned in the most dramatic obstacles to freedom ever seen in Britain in times of peace or war, while the government does everything it can to stop the spread of the killer disease, which has caused 335 deaths in the UK.
