Police bust illegal pop-up shisha bar AND salon
West Midlands Police rumble 36 people rammed in an illegal pop-up shisha lounge as well as nine people playing pool in a salon in Birmingham, handing out nearly £30,000 in Covid fines.
West Midlands Police (WMP) said officers who were clamping down on lockdown breaches found 36 people crammed above a food shop on Stratford Road in Sparkbrook, Birmingham , on Saturday night. The floor had been turned into an open plan shisha lounge, with beer and soft drinks on offer, card games being played and football on the TV.
It was among the latest ‘blatant’ and ‘disheartening’ breaches of Covid-19 social distancing laws in the region, WMP Assistant Chief Constable Mark Payne said. Everyone at the shisha bar got an £800 fine under recently introduced rules bringing in higher penalties for gatherings of more than 15 people.
