Three students who hosted a house party and invited 100 guests have been fined £10,000. For breaching coronavirus rules.
Students fined £10000: Norfolk police were called to an address in Bowthorpe Road, Norwich at just after 1am on Sunday. Where three women were holding the house party. At this point, they were each issued a fixed penalty notice. Officers who attended the call out arrived to find people mixing together and drinking. Totally ignoring the social distancing rules.
Later, a spokesman for Norfolk police said. “Officers dispersed the gathering. And three occupants at the address, a 19-year-old woman and two 20-year-old women, were issued with the fixed penalty notice. For contravening the ban on being involved in holding a gathering of more than 30 people.”
Also, speaking on behalf of the University of East Anglia, where the women were students, a spokesperson said. “We fully support the actions of the police. Students, like everyone else, have to adhere to the law. And where there is a breach of the rules they should expect to face the same consequences as others in the community.
Additionally, we are issuing regular reminders about following the rules to all students. Both on and off campus and in addition to the police action we will also be looking into this matter. And subsequently taking appropriate action. In the vast majority of cases our students are behaving responsibly.”
And now, the University said that they will be looking into the matter and taking appropriate action.
