‘Our neighbourhood officers will be carrying out extra patrols throughout the area tonight and into the weekend and are asking that people continue to adhere to Covid-19 restrictions.’

Recently, two people who organised a snowball fight in Leeds were fined £10,000 by West Yorkshire Police – the maximum penalty for breaking the lockdown restrictions.

Sergeant Simon Kirkham of the Walkley Team had a message for people who are thinking about breaking the rules.

He said: ‘We must all continue to follow the restrictions, which are in place to protect people and save lives.

‘The vast majority of the public are still working so hard to adhere to the rules, it is frustrating to see people willing to put the wider community at risk, please think about the consequences of your actions.’
