Man charged with breaching Covid-19 regulations after police visit Gedling cafe following reports of gathering


Police have charged a man with obstructing a police officer and breaching Covid-19 regulations after officers were called to a report of 40 to 50 people gathering at a cafe in Gedling.

Shaun Everest, 47, of Ossington Close, Meden Vale, Mansfield, has been granted conditional bail to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 29 January 2021.

The action comes after officers were called to the Mustard Seed cafe in Main Road at 4.20pm on Saturday (November 14).


A 53-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of failing to provide his details to police while they attempted to issue a Covid fixed penalty notice. He was released having provided his details and was issued with a £200 fixed penalty notice.

On arrival the premises was locked with a large number of people inside – despite the health protection regulations.

Inspector Chris Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The lockdown regulations are intended to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and save lives.

“Most people across the county have been playing their part in limiting the spread of the virus but sadly there remain a few people who refuse to adhere to our efforts to engage, explain and educate and consequently we will not hesitate to work with our partners to enforce the regulations.”
