Host Faces £10,000 Fine as Police Find More Than 30 at London Party

The Metropolitan Police released footage on December 21 showing officers breaking up a house party they said was held on December 17 for more than 30 people.

Police said the party, at a flat in Cadogan Gardens, Chelsea, was in breach of COVID-19 restrictions. The host faces a potential £10,000 fine, police said.

“I am astounded that people are putting themselves, their families and their friends at risks by hosting flat parties and possibly spreading this virus," said PC James Berridge-Cane from the Met’s Central West BCU. Credit: Metropolitan Police via Storyful
