25 West Yorkshire party-goers fined after police raid house party
Police fined 25 people after breaking up a house party in Wakefield.
Officers were called after reports of a party in the Agbrigg area on Saturday evening.
Police said there were 25 people inside the house who were clearly breaching coronavirus regulations.
Everyone inside was issued with a fixed penalty notice, according to West Yorkshire Police's Wakefield North East and Rural team.
A police spokesman said: "Officers attended an address in the Agbrigg area this evening due to reports of a house party.
"On attending officers noted 25 people inside the property clearly breaching Covid-19 legislation.
"All persons in the property were issued with a fixed penalty notice."
Under the latest lockdown rules, people in England must stay at home and only go out for essential reasons.
The police have a legal duty to make sure the rules are enforced, and you could be issued with a fixed penalty notice if you break the rules.
Since March, some 32,000 have been issued in England and Wales.
