Police urge people to avoid a ‘party weekend’ before rule of six begins in England on Monday.
A teenager faces a £10,000 fine for hosting a house party with dozens of guests, just days before the “rule of six” coronavirus restriction comes into force.
The 19-year-old man was issued with the hefty fine after he allowed more than 50 people to attend a party at his home on Harlaxton Drive, Lenton, on Friday evening, Nottinghamshire police said.
The force said if the party host fails to pay or contests the fine he will appear before a court.
“Under current rules, we can issue fines to anyone hosting gatherings of more than 30 people, which can result in fines of up to £10,000.
The chairman of the body representing rank and file police officers urged people to avoid a “party weekend” before the rule of six restrictions come into play.
