Mayfair house party results in 34 penalty notices and fine for organiser

London April 14 (BAN/MP) Officers have issued more than 30 Covid fines after being called to a large house party in Mayfair.

Police attended the address in Dover Street at approximately 00:52hrs on Sunday, 11 April and found a large number of people inside playing music and drinking alcohol.

A total of 34 people were reported for the consideration of a fixed penalty notice under the Health Protection Regulations. The organiser was reported for a £10,000 fine.

Superintendent Daniel Rutland, said: “As we prepare for more restrictions to be eased in England it is more important than ever that everybody is following the rules and avoiding unnecessary risks.

“We all have a part to play to ensure the Covid infection rate does not rise again and this type of behaviour risks jeopardising the progress that has been made by the majority of people who have followed the rules.”
