Police have shared the moment an officer tried to break up an illegal gathering at a "selfish" covidiot's house, only for another woman to shout over his voice.
The body-worn footage was taken after a call was received about a house party involving three households in Rhymney in Gwent on Saturday, January 16, Wales Online reports.
In the video, a police officer says: "We've had a call saying people are here who are not meant to be here and there was a bit of a party earlier on."
"Earlier on, yeah?" she says.
"Is there anyone here who doesn't live here now?" the officer asks.
The woman angrily denies it before asking: "Are you going to fine me for this?"
She replies: "Well I'm not going to pay it," when the officer says she will be fined if she is breaking restrictions.
"Get off me!" the police officer shouts as he follows the woman into her house, only for pandemonium to break out and another person to scream and shout over his voice.
Last weekend a total of 54 people were fined by Gwent Police for breaching coronavirus regulations, including holding house parties.
Woman charged after 'filming inside hospital asking where are all the people dying?'
Chief superintendent Mark Hobrough said: "Alert level four restrictions are still in place in Wales which means that people should remain in their own household and only travel when necessary.
"House parties and any mixing of households, both indoors and outdoors, is prohibited by Welsh Government regulations.
"Organising parties and gatherings is dangerous, selfish, and is totally unacceptable in light of the current threat we face.
"Please don’t risk the lives of your loved ones and the wider community by having house parties or gatherings.
"We would like to thank the majority of Gwent residents who are adhering to Covid regulations and we will continue to engage, explain, and encourage our communities to work together with us to keep everyone safe.
"For those who blatantly go against the restrictions we will take enforcement action. Coronavirus levels remain high across much of Gwent and by following Welsh Government advice we’re all saving lives and protecting the NHS."
