Fines Issued After 'Disgusting' Lockdown Party Pictures Shared On Instagram

Fines Issued After 'Disgusting' Lockdown Party Pictures Shared On Instagram

Partygoers were pictured toasting with champagne and bottles of Corona beer at a 'selfish' lockdown party in Salford last night (16 January).

Images from the party showed a group of guests attending the party at a flat in the Greengate area of Salford sucking on balloons, drinking beer, posing for selfies, and generally ignoring all of the current rules pertaining to the reduction in spread of coronavirus.

Then, in a move that wasn't the smartest, some attendees posted on their public Instagram accounts about the party, which prompted members of the public to report them to the police.

While the police reported they had initially found no evidence of a breach of regulations upon attending the address, the Manchester Evening News reports four people were later fined for Covid-19 restriction breaches.

The report also suggests some of those present at the gathering may have travelled from as far away as Clitheroe in Lancashire.

One of the videos posted was timestamped at 2.15am on Saturday 16 January.

After the photos and video started circulating on Instagram, some were moved to contact the police regarding the 'selfish' and 'disgusting' attitude of the partygoers.

Another said they'd emailed Greater Manchester Police after seeing the videos posted online, before deciding to call the police upon seeing that the party had continued until the early hours of the morning.
