A man has been fined by police after breaching coronavirus rules to visit his friend’s house for a good old cup of English tea
Cops In a Facebook post said: “As a follow on from yesterday’s post reminding you we are currently in Lockdown 2.0 as they say and under Government restrictions, a fixed penalty was issued to a male last night who decided he was going to see his mate and have a brew with him and to make matters worse he tried to lie about why he was there.
You cannot go to another persons address unless for certain exemptions i.e. child care, support bubble etc. full details are available on line.”
In the post, officers also said there had been a number of vehicle thefts in the Lowton and Golborne areas, and warned residents to be vigilant.
Leaving your home without a valid reason can now land you a £200 fine and criminal record in England.
Since a second national lockdown was introduced in England, people can only leave for work, exercise, medical need, to get food and some other reasons set out under the new coronavirus restrictions.
