Over 70 people found breaking Covid rules in Tower Hamets and Hackney

Five people were arrested for a variety of offences 

More than 70 people in Tower Hamlets and Hackney have been reported for fines, amounting to a total of £15,800, after breaching Covid-19 guidelines. 

Officers responded to a variety of breaches, such as non-essential businesses operating illegally and unauthorised parties, during two days of action last Thursday and Friday. 

More than five arrests were made for drug, immigration and public order offences. 

The operation was carried out in partnership with both boroughs local councils. 

Officers also set up a hate crime surgery which was open to members of the public and offered advice around hate crimes which were specifically related to Covid-19. 

Schools officers took part in a live two hour Q&A session on coronavirus to help parents, students and school staff better understand the current restrictions. 

“Though police continue to work to manage and mitigate the damage done by breaches of coronavirus legislation, another key part of our work is to ensure that members of our community feel supported during this time,” said Chief Inspector Pete Shaw. 

By hosting a Hate Crime surgery and online Q&A session for students, parents and teachers, we were able to pinpoint our communities concerns and tailor our operational plans to address what they see as the most pressing matters in the local area.”

Deputy Mayor of Tower Hamlets for Community Safety, Faith and Equalities, Councillor Sirajul Islam, said the “vast majority” of residents follow Covid-19 rules. 

“We are working closely with the police to issue fines to those who are putting others at risk by continuing to break the rules,” added Cllr Islam.
