Police officers stopped a party of three hundred people in northeast London.
It is noted that after the arrival of police to the area of Hackney, the organizers of the event locked the door, and some participants managed to escape when law enforcers entered the premises. This is reported by Sky News.
As a result, 78 participants of the illegal event were arrested. All of them received fines of 200 pounds sterling.
“Officers were again forced to risk their health to deal with a large group of incredibly selfish people who were crammed tightly into a confined space, providing the perfect opportunity for the virus to spread,” the Metropolitan Police Department said.
