Polie moved on a gathering of around 100 cars in Telford

Telford Police said they had been called about a number of car enthusiasts meeting up at Stafford Park in the town yesterday evening.

There were no arrests made and the car owners moved on after officers "engaged and explained".

Writing on Twitter, the force suggested that the ongoing coronavirus situation meant it was not the time for a gathering.

They said: " Officers were called to a large gathering of car enthusiasts on Stafford Park.

"With covid restrictions it's probably not the right time. Most are leaving but estimates were about 100 cars!"

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "Police were called to Stafford Park around 7.40pm last night over concerns of a number of cars congregating on the industrial estate. Officers attended and the group dispersed with no issues.

"Police are reminding people due to the current covid regulations it is illegal to gather in a public place in a group of more than six people."

Under the current covid-19 regulations, gatherings of more than six people from different households are illegal.
