British police discovered by chance that there was a huge wedding party that included up to 70 people inside a hall, and it lasted for more than two hours after the venue was closed under coronavirus regulations.West Midlands Police officers raided The Greyhound pub in Birmingham, and surveillance cameras showed the moment officers found a large batch of food, DJs, and an estimated 65-70 guests walking around still serving drinks.
Guests were quickly sent home and the find led the pub owner to pay a fine of £ 1,000 (20,000 Egyptian pounds), who violated regulations stipulating that venues must close at 10 oclock.
It came a few hours after officers of the same force stormed a funeral of 200 people at the Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel in Solihull, less than 4 miles away.
Police received 9 calls complaining about the rally and loud music, and footage of the wedding discovery was posted on the West Midlands Police Twitter account.
The video shows the officers wearing masks before entering the bar and being surprised by a party full of disco lights. Inside, they found staff and guests wandering around and placing large quantities of food – including a wedding cake – on the tables.
