Three house parties fined in Lincoln

Within 24 hours of the latest stage of easing lockdown restrictions, officers in Lincoln responded to three house parties.

The gatherings were reported by members of the public and took place at properties in Dunholme Court, Pine Close and Longdales Road.

A relatively small number of people were found at each property, between 6 and 10 people, but those involved had breached the national restrictions that are still in place for socialising indoors and a total of eight Fixed Penalty Notice’s were issued.

Outside of Lincoln, there were no other significant gatherings indoors across Lincolnshire which were brought to the police’s attention.

Following the relaxing of restrictions, there were also no significant incidents brought to the police’s attention around the reopening of businesses and services.

Chief Superintendent Jon McAdam, said: “Firstly I’d like to thank the vast majority of people across Lincolnshire for being responsible since the latest easing of the lockdown restrictions, and the positive measures taken by local businesses in ensuring this is managed as safe as possible.

“The reopening of pubs, shops, gyms and outdoor venues is welcome news for us all, but it is crucial that we don’t become complacent and we continue to stick to the rules; ensuring we all play our part to keep ourselves and others safe and to prevent any possible resurgence of the virus.

“This has been a difficult time for everyone and whilst we have reached the next stage for the easing of restrictions it is important to remind ourselves that indoor gatherings are not permitted at this time.”
