Police have broken up a child’s birthday party after finding 24 people celebrating in a small flat.
Officers attended the property in Victoria Street, Mansfield, at around 3pm on Thursday and found 14 adults alongside ten children.
They were alerted by members of the public when they saw party banners at the family barbecue, police said.
COVID-19 laws do not allow mixing indoors with people who are not in your “social bubble”, so the adults were fined a total of £11,200.
New legislation brought on 29 January increased the fines to £800 per adult for a gathering above 15 people inside a property.
