Police Officers Break Up 'Wake' Attended By '100 People' In London

Police Officers Break Up 'Wake' Attended By '100 People' In London

Over 100 people allegedly broke lockdown rules to 'attend a wake' held on a static caravan site in London earlier on this week.

Witnesses said that around 100 police officers stormed onto the scene at a residential street in Seven Sisters in the north of the city on Thursday night (14 January), arriving in around 15 vans.

Witnesses said some of the people attending the event had consumed alcohol and became aggressive towards the police when they were told they were in breach of coronavirus regulations and needed to leave.

Officers have arrested one person on suspicion of an unrelated theft, and 42 people were reported for consideration for Fixed Penalty Notices.

Photographs from the incident show the police lining up outside the gates of the site where the event was being held, and onlookers said a police officer had a conversation with attendees through the metal gates.

More photographs show police officers speaking to attendees on the street, which was surrounded by police vehicles, while one man appeared to be holding up a white flag.

A video shows the large group of people then arguing with the police in raised voices as they left the illegal gathering.

One resident also claimed that another event was held earlier in the week on Tuesday (12 January). That event allegedly had '250 people drinking in the street'.

The witness, who did not wish to be named, said: "On Tuesday they had another wake. It all got a bit rowdy and the police started to talk to them to try to stop it. They didn't get very far.
