This is the moment the police crushed a birthday party and fined £ 10,000.
The footage shown above shows officers arriving at the crime scene in a function room with dozens of guests.
Police were shocked that social distancing rules were not being followed and the event clearly ignored the rules for gatherings.
When they searched the premises on Dale Street in Bilston, they found a huge sound system, blown balloon arcs, a large number of alcohol bottles, a drawer full of cash and even a card reader.
Now officials have handed the organizer of the big birthday party in Wolverhampton a £ 10,000 fine for violating coronavirus rules.
It is believed that over 60 people attended the event on October 30th and the West Midlands Police published raids to illustrate what happened.
Wolverhampton Police Department Supt Simon Inglis said: “It is unfortunate that we had to impose another £ 10,000 fine but this was an obvious breach of coronavirus law.”
“But at a critical time for the city’s health, the vast majority of the community would agree that this was necessary on that occasion.
“We need to be really clear to the people who are thinking of organizing or attending such an event that we are going to take action to protect the community.
“In addition to imposing fines on those who organize such events, those who attend are also at risk of individual fines and we will not think twice about imposing them when necessary.

“Overall, our goal is to help the community and be there when they need us rather than fines for violating the rules.
“However, we will continue to stand by our key public health and community players, and fines if necessary to ensure people follow the rules and protect the community.”
Councilor Jasbir Jaspal, Cabinet Member of the Wolverhampton City Council for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: “We all play a key role in the fight against Covid-19 and the vast majority of Wulfrunians have worked incredibly hard months over the past few years to keep the spread to prevent the virus.
“Organizing and attending such a party is against almost every Covid-19 regulation, and I am sure that law-abiding residents will be just as disgusted as I by the actions of others who, through their thoughtlessness, put people’s lives at risk . “
