Man Fined For Visiting Friend's House For A Brew

Man Fined For Visiting Friend's House For A Brew

A man has been fined for breaking coronavirus lockdown restrictions by visiting his friend's house for a brew, then lying to police about why he was there.

The man went to his mate's on Friday night in Wigan, Greater Manchester, but as per current lockdown rules, you shouldn't socialise indoors with anyone from other households, unless they are in your support bubble.

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, Greater Manchester Police's Golborne and Lowton team posted about the incident on Facebook.

The post read: "As a follow on from yesterday's post reminding you we are currently in Lockdown 2.0 as they say and under Government restrictions, a fixed penalty was issued to a male last night who decided he was going to see his mate and have a brew with him and to make matters worse he tried to lie about why he was there.

"You cannot go to another person's address unless for certain exemptions i.e. child care, support bubble etc. full details are available online."

Under the latest restrictions, police can issue fixed penalty notices to anyone aged 18 or over. If it's their first offence, they will have to pay £200, which is reduced to £100 if paid within the first 14 days.

For a second offence, they would be issued with a fine of £400. This then doubles for each offence up to a maximum of £6,400.

The second nationwide lockdown was announced by Boris Johnson on Saturday 31 October and was introduced in England on Thursday 5 November.

Unlike the first lockdown in March, which was open-ended, the new measures will last for around a month until 2 December.

People must not mix inside homes, other than for childcare or other forms of support, while pubs and restaurants must close, along with non-essential shops. Takeaways can remain open, however.

Schools and universities will remain open.

Travel within the UK is discouraged, apart from for work, and outbound international travel will be banned - again, with work as an exception.

The new lockdown rules have sparked protests up and down the country.

Footage shared on social media showed protesters marching through the streets of London on the day the new restrictions came into place, with a number of people arrested.

Protesters were spotted at Trafalgar Square, and according to the Metropolitan Police, ignored orders to go home and later moved onto Oxford Street.

A spokesperson for the force urged them to 'go home' as the gathering of large crowds of people is prohibited under the current lockdown rules.
