Party host is fined £800 for repeated breaches of rules
A RESTRICTIONS rule-breaker has been fined a total of £800 for repeatedly holding parties in virus-hit Bolton.
The offender has now been issued with four fixed-penalty notices (FPN) by Greater Manchester Police.
Officers were called to reports of a large gathering at the same property in Pentland Terrace, Bolton, on four separate occasions. The last was at 2am on Sunday, the force said.
The force said it had issued 400 FPNS for breaches of Covid-19 legislation, with 85 issued between Friday to Sunday. One incident in Heaton Moor, Stockport, saw around 60 people attend a wedding reception.
Nick Bailey, Assistant Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, said: “While the vast majority of people in Greater Manchester continue to abide by government legislation, there are some who continue to flout the law. I would remind people of the very stark financial penalties now in place for failing to follow lockdown guidance – with fines doubling for each further breach.”
