Students fined £10,000 each after flouting rules to hold house party

Four students have been fined £10,000 each after flouting rules to hold ‘wild’ house party.

THE party in Lenton, Nottingham, was initially broken up by Community Protection Officers on Tuesday night, October 20, who were accused of “spoiling” the revellers’ fun.

However, when the police were called back to the property, they discovered more than 30 people hiding in the basement and elsewhere in the property.

As a result, the third year students from Nottingham Trent University – who claimed they were having the “time of their lives” – were all suspended and slammed with the hefty fines.

Assistant Chief Constable Kate Meynell, of Nottinghamshire Police, said “this needs to stop” and added that claims the police are ruining students’ fun are “astounding”.

“We do not take pleasure in handing out fines and would much rather be in a situation where students could enjoy themselves but the reality is that if people do not follow the Covid-19 restrictions, more people will die.”

The police are working with Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham City Council to make sure that all breaches of Covid legislation are dealt with appropriately.

The university confirmed the fines and said it had launched its own investigation and suspended four students.

A spokesperson added that “any student who is found to have breached our disciplinary regulations can face a range of sanctions, up to and including expulsion”.

Nottinghamshire is currently under Tier 2 restrictions but could be moved to Tier 3 due to the spread of coronavirus.
