A total of 49 people have been fined for breaching Covid regulations at an illegal car meet in Rainham. 

Officers received reports at 11.46pm on Saturday evening, of around 50 vehicles who had gathered in the Ferry Lane area.

The group were found by police speeding around a nearby roundabout and mixing with other drivers without any social distancing.

East Area BCU Commander Detective Chief Superintendent Stephen Clayman said: “It is unacceptable that people are still breaking the rules at a time when there is so much pressure on the NHS. It is more important than ever before that people follow the regulations.

“The restrictions are clear enough and there is no excuse for this sort of selfish behaviour that puts lives at risk and causes a nuisance for nearby residents who are doing the right thing by staying at home.

“We understand that this is a very difficult time for everyone but our top priority as police officers is keeping people safe. If that means moving quicker to enforcement action for more wilful breaches, then we will do.”
