Homeowner “sets up music decks and then tries to hide guests” when the police show up.


Officials were called to the address in Runcorn, Cheshire, after neighbors reported hearing loud music.

Police fined a group of party-goers after “blatantly” catching them breaking coronavirus rules.

Six people were fined by police after neighbors reported hearing loud music from a property.

Cheshire police said as they entered the house the owner had put music decks in his living room and “was busy” hiding five party guests, Cheshire Live reports.

Cheshire and Warrington were placed under the “high” measures on 14 October due to the high alert status of the boroughs, while the Liverpool City region, which includes Runcorn, was placed under level 3 restrictions.

In a posting on Facebook, Cheshire police said they did not want to prevent people from having fun, but residents “really need to follow the rules” to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The police said the group understood the current coronavirus rules in Cheshire but attended the meeting anyway.

The police said that as a result of the “flagrant” breach all six people were fined £200.

“Whenever there is a breach, we will always get involved, explain and encourage people to follow the rules, but sometimes, no matter how hard we try, we have to enforce them.

A spokesman for the troop said: “We don’t want to stop you from having fun, but we really need to encourage you to follow the rules so that we can help contain the spread of the virus.

“Last night, after reports of loud music, we visited an address in Grangeway, Runcorn.

“When we entered the house, the owner had placed a music desk in his living room and was busy hiding five guests.

“As a result of this blatant violation, all six were fined £200.”

“Everyone in the house said they knew the rules, but were still present.

“Disappointingly, there are a small number of people who break the rules.”

The spokesperson added: “Over the weekend it was really encouraging to see that the majority of residents across Cheshire were playing by the rules and doing everything in their power to slow down the spread of Covid-19.
