A woman has been fined £200 for travelling from Scotland to attend a house party in Kent.
She was stopped by police near to Medway Services on the M2 motorway over the new year period and told to return home.
Assistant Chief Constable Claire Nix said: “On the occasions where people showed a blatant disregard for the regulations, putting others in danger by hosting gatherings or meeting others whilst infected with the virus, officers were left with no other option but to issue fines.”
Meanwhile, Police Scotland arrested more than 20 people and issued more than 300 fines for Covid breaches during the new year period.
A total of 326 fixed penalties were handed out between December 28 and January 3, while 21 people were arrested.
