Five people fined for lockdown breach after officers called to Stoke-on-Trent house



Five people have been fined for breaching the second lockdown after officers were called to a Stoke-on-Trent house.

Police officers issued fines to the five people after being called to a property on Chelmsford Drive, in Bentilee, on Thursday night (November 19).

Police officers are now urging families to follow the coronavirus lockdown rules. It comes as the city now has the fifth highest Covid-19 infection rate in England.

Yesterday there were 173 positive cases in the city.

Staffordshire Police say officers will continue to enforce the lockdown rules by issuing fines.

A spokesman said: “Well, someone didn’t have a good poker face to conceal what they were up to when we knocked at their door earlier this week!

“Our officers arrived at an address on Chelmsford Drive in Bentilee on Thursday night following a report of a Covid breach.

“At the address we found five adults present, all of which were issued fines for breaching Covid regulations.

“We would like to remind people that we all have a part to play in helping stop the spread of Covid-19 and while we are keen to work with communities and support locals as we navigate through these restrictions together, we will issue fines when people blatantly disregard the rules and put others at risk.”
