I have about 23 hits from somewhere in England indicating that there were 100% bounce at the same time. Not sure how this could happen. Is this a bot? Not sure how to fix this?
Appreciate your help and patience,

There are a couple of different options how to figure out the bot traffic.
1. Go to Audience -> Network -> Set the primary dimension to "Hostname" -> Set the secondary dimension to "Country".
If you see a decent amount of sessions from England but the hostname of these sessions are not your site (yoursite.com), then it's probably a bot traffic. If you see this kind of hostnames like "www.dozai.co.uk" or "www.ipkndgkurbeq.co.uk" you can be sure that it's a bot traffic.
2. Go to Acquisition -> All traffic -> Channels -> Set the primary dimension to "source/medium" -> Set the secondary dimension to "Hostname".
If you see a decent amount of sessions but the hostname of these sessions are (not set), then it's probably a bot traffic. You might see this kind of source/mediums like "law-enforcement-check-one.xyz / referral" or "eu-cookie-law.blogspot.com / referral"
How to fix this?
Here are a couple of brilliant articles that teach how to eliminate bot traffic:
I really recommend you check out the spam filter insertion tool that is made by Simo Ahava. It's easy to use and it contains a huge list of spam sources. This tool lets you automatically create and link referral spam filters to your Google Analytics views. You can find it here: http://www.simoahava.com/spamfilter/
