Victoria Police found former Melbourne lord mayor Robert Doyle did not breach COVID-19 restrictions when he was spotted at Anglesea over the weekend.

The force confirmed on Sunday it had received reports of an alleged breach of the Chief Health Officer’s directions at Anglesea the day before.

But by Monday Victoria Police said the investigation had been completed.

“The matter has been investigated, there has been no breach of any CHO directions and no offence has been detected,” spokeswoman Belinda Batty said.

“There will be no further police action.”

The Geelong Advertiser received multiple reports Mr Doyle, a woman and his young son were at the Anglesea General Store for an hour on Saturday.

A witness said: “It’s really unfair for him to think that he has different privileges to the rest of us.”

Former Melbourne Lord Mayor Robert Doyle was spotted in the Anglesea General Store on Saturday morning, despite the COVID-19 lockdown in Melbourne.

The Addy understands Mr Doyle entered his details into a sign-in book at the store.

Polwarth MP Richard Riordan, whose electorate encompasses Anglesea, said people who lived in Melbourne should not be travelling to regional Victoria during the metropolitan lockdown.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, you cannot be going for a Sunday drive into regional Victoria,” Mr Riordan said.

“Country Victorians are relying on the roadblocks going out of Melbourne to be effective.”

Premier Daniel Andrews urged Victorians who were flouting restrictions to consider the families of those who had lost their lives to the virus.

“Now is not the time to be having parties, breaking the rules and not only putting yourself at risk but potentially risking the health and wellbeing of others,” Mr Andrews said.

When asked why he was at Anglesea Mr Doyle said: ‘Access visit to my son”.
