Four fines issued for 'blatant' breaches of lockdown restrictions in Broseley

Fines were issued in Broseley for "blatant" breaches of coronavirus lockdown restrictions, say officers.

Police handed out four fixed penalty notices last night for what they have described as residents clearly breaking Covid-19 regulations.

A spokesperson from Broseley & Wenlock Safer Neighbourhood Team, part of West Mercia Police, said: "Four fixed penalty notices were issued last night in Broseley for blatant breaches of the coronavirus lockdown.

"These measures are in place to protect us all and top the NHS from being overwhelmed."

The cost of a first offence is £200, which is lowered to £100 if paid within 14 days, and £400 for a second offence.

The fine is doubled for each further offence up to a maximum of £6,400.

Individuals found holding an illegal gathering of more than 30 people could be fined £10,000.
