A man has pleaded not guilty to taking part in an illegal gathering at a Gedling tearoom during Covid restrictions.

The BBC has reported that officers from Nottinghamshire Police broke up a gathering of “40 to 50 people” at the Mustard Seed on Main Road.

Shaun Everest, 48, was charged with attending a gathering of more than two people, and obstructing a police officer in the execution of their duty.

He denied the charges at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court earlier this week.

Mr Everest, of Ossington Close, Meden Vale, has been granted conditional bail and told to keep away from the tea room.

He will face trial at the same court on July 22.



  1. “… has been granted conditional bail and told not to keep away from the tea room”. He has to be at the tea room all the time?
