Breaking News ! Two women have been fined £200 each for flouting coronavirus lockdown rules after they were caught getting nail treatments at a beauty salon. Officers were called to Star Nails in Stockwell Head, Hinkley, Leics., after being alerted by CCTV operators on Saturday (9/1). They discovered two customers inside being pampered by staff and promptly issued them with fixed penalty notices for breaching coronavirus laws. Leicestershire Police said the salon worker who was attending to the two women was also slapped with a £200 fine. Hinckley Police wrote on Facebook: “On Saturday 9th January at around 2.15pm police where alerted by local CCTV in Hinckley to a suspected Covid breach at Star Nails on Stockwell Head. “Officers from Hinckley Police and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council ’s environmental health department attended the location and found the nail salon open with customers being treated.

Over 1,500 more deaths today. "Is having your nails done really that important?” (Image: Hinckley Police / SWNS) The brazen breach of Covid rules was just one of several examples given by the force as they fined 142 people over that weekend.
. Earlier this week, police released video footage shaming those who were caught breaking the regulations. They included a group of boy racers who gathered for a car meet in Castle Donington and a house party of more than 30 people in Leicester city centre.
Another person had travelled over 110 miles from York to Leicester, via Birmingham, just to visit a mate. Police were also called to an address in Stretton where six men from different households claimed they were having a business meeting over beer and food. Three people caught in the same car together told police they were "just chilling" after work and pleaded "it's only been for five minutes." Assistant Chief Constable Kerry Smith said: “Over the weekend we dealt with a number incidents where people had no excuse for their behaviour.

"Some of the reasons for being outside were ridiculous and this is what officers are having to deal with. “We cannot be clearer about how this is the only way to stop the spread of the virus. Stay at home, protect the NHS. “There really is no excuse this far into the pandemic for people to be taking these risks."
