The organiser of an illegal party in Chiswick has been fined £10,000 for a breach of coronavirus regulations.

Police received reports of a party at a property on Horticultural Place which is near the Town Hall. Officers from the West Area BCU supported by the Territorial Support Group (TSG) were deployed to the address at 12:42am on Sunday 28 February where they found around 30 people and a large quantity of alcohol.

A search of the property revealed a large machete which had been hidden in a fridge.

The 32-year-old man who police identified as the organiser of the event has been reported for the fine.

Inspector Susan Darby, Covid-19 lead for the West Area Command Unit said, “Restrictions are still in place to protect lives; every person who attended this illegal gathering has acted irresponsibly and has potentially put others at risk.

“We will continue to keep a steady enforcement stance on breaches of Covid-19 restrictions when they are alerted to us.”
