Police broke up a birthday party at a Conservative MP's house amid the coronavirus lockdown. Two guests were asked to disperse from the house of Rob Roberts, MP for Delyn in north Wales. According to The Mirror balloons and banners were seen outside the house of the Tory MP.
Superintendent Mark Pierce, from North Wales Police, spoke to reporters and said they were called to Roberts's address on Monday. He said: "In response to two reports of a possible breach of Covid-19 regulations, we visited an address at Ty'n y Coed, Mold, yesterday (Monday, May 25).
"When we called at the property, two people visiting the house left following advice and no further action was taken."
Current coronavirus restrictions mean that it is illegal to visit other households or have other people visit you.mA spokesman for the MP said: "Rob Roberts was not present at the time.
"His family have been reminded of the guidelines set out by the Government."
This event comes days after Roberts announced he would not be calling for Dominic Cummings to stand down, after the chief advisor to Boris Johnson admitted to driving 260 miles from London to Durham with his wife and son while he had coronavirus. Events like this have angered the public as they feel that tory MP's are not abiding by the rules they helped create.
