Lockdown flouting barbers found in Stoke-on-Trent house



Police officers were called to a house in Stoke-on-Trent after reports it was being used as a barbershop.

Officers were patrolling the city in the ‘Covid car’ checking for anyone breaching the lockdown 2.0 rules.

One call included a house in Normacot where neighbours believed a barbershop was being run despite hairdressers being forced to close.

While a number of people across the area have been fined for breaching the Covid rules, officers opted against issuing a penalty notice this time.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: “We were called to an address in Normacot where we found a household running a barber shop from inside their address.

“Officer discretion used on this occasion as they have not been reported to us previously and we want to educate and explain and have us all working together as a community.”

Officers were also called to Kidsgrove to reports of a coronavirus regulation breach. Once there they spoke to the individual and found there had been no breach.
