[Ed. – Yes, they’re the eye in the sky and they’ll be watching Brits who try to gather for family-and-friends celebrations during the holidays.]
Police chiefs have warned that Christmas family celebrations will be broken up by officers if they flout lockdown rules.
David Jamieson, the West Midlands police and crime commissioner, said officers will investigate reports of rule-breaking over the festive period.
The West Midlands are currently under Tier 2 restrictions, meaning people cannot mix with any other households or bubbles inside. …
The police chief also warned about the upcoming Hanukkah and Diwali celebrations which will also see families eager to gather inside, contrary to the rules in certain areas.
Mr Jamieson told The Telegraph … ‘It’s not the police’s job to stop people enjoying their Christmas. However, we are there to enforce the rules that the Government makes, and if the Government makes those rules then the Government has to explain that to the public.’
