Gran Handed £60 Coronavirus Fine For Attending Her Mate's 70th Birthday Party

A granny from Scotland has been landed with a £60 fine for breaching Covid-19 restrictions to attend her mate's 70th birthday party.

82-year-old Maureen Hogg, from East Renfrewshire, was given the penalty notice by the police after they showed up to break up the party in Eaglesham.

Maureen was found to be in breach of the government's coronavirus restrictions, which prohibit large groups of people from meeting up inside, amongst a host of other things.

Despite that, it still drew a laugh from Maureen's granddaughter, who shared the news on Twitter.

17-year-old Daisy wrote: "Howling that my 82-year-old Gran got a covid fine cause she got caught at a gaff for someone's 70th.

"Taken home by the police and everything, she is who I aspire to be like at 82."

Yeah, it's usually the other way around right?

Along with that tweet, Daisy also shared a picture of a group chat message from her mother that read: "Grans been charged with antisocial behaviour by Police Scotland."

She later shared the picture of her gran's £60 penalty notice, which was under the Antisocial Behaviour Act of 2004.

Daisy claims that everyone at the party has been fully vaccinated, although that's not really the point, is it?

At this point it's worth remembering that people can still transmit and even catch the virus whether they've been vaccinated or not, so it's not a carte blanche to go about doing whatever you like.

Anyway, everyone at the gaff was fined £60 for their antisocial behaviour, which is - apparently - a price that Daisy's gran is more than happy to put up.

The tweet has since been liked more than 27,000 times and retweeted 1,300 times, with many folks chiming in to offer their thoughts on the matter.

One said: "When an 82 year old has a better social life than us at the moment."

Another wrote: "Your gran sounds awesome. Most fines get thrown out of court too."

A third commented: "I want to be that bad at 82 years old."

Speaking after the fact, Daisy said: "I hope I'm partying like her at that age."

"I thought it was funny, my Mum and Dad did too."

Sure, it is pretty funny, but here's just a reminder that the pandemic isn't over yet, so it's best to keep following the rules whilst they're still there, even if you're happy enough to pay the £60 fine.
