Coronavirus rule breaches: Three reported for summons after more than 25 people attend gender reveal party near Portchester Castle
Three people have been reported for summons after police had to break up a gender reveal party near Portchester Castle.
As reported, police said that on Sunday, March 21, they had to break up the party, which was attended by more than 25 people.
Fareham police said that after inquiries they identified the organisers and that three people have been reported for summons in relation to fixed penalty notices for breaching the Health Protection Regulations.
They are a 34-year-old man, a 29-year-old woman and a 54-year-old woman, from Portsmouth.
At the time no restrictions had been lifted and so it was illegal to meet anyone outside a household or a support bubble.
A statement from Fareham police said: ‘Under the easing of restrictions on Monday, March 29 outdoor gatherings of up to six people (or two families/linked households) are permitted. Indoor gatherings remain prohibited and we will continue to carry out enforcement action in response to blatant breaches of the Health Protection Regulations.
‘We would like to remind everyone that we all need to play our part in adhering to the government restrictions in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Those who flagrantly flout the law can expect to face robust enforcement action.’
