Young people spotted ignoring lock rules to fight in Liverpool cemetery


A large group of young people were videotaped, apparently ignoring the lockdown rules for fighting in a Liverpool cemetery.

The large group of teenagers were spotted at Toxteth Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon.

In the images sent to ECHO, a group of around 20 young people can be seen up close, despite the current trends in social distancing.

A number of the group can also be seen fighting in the clip captured by a passerby.

Although the coronavirus lockout has been slightly relaxed this week, allowing people to exercise as much as they want, group meetings are not allowed by current guidelines.

One person who spotted the group told ECHO, “My roommate and I were taking a daily walk through the cemetery and upon entering we immediately saw a large group of young people very close to each other.

“None of them distanced themselves socially and they fought and made great contact with each other.

“Another group also joined, in total there were at least 20 if not more. “

Under the new directive, released Sunday evening by the Prime Minister, people are allowed to spend more time outside and sunbathe where they could not before.

However, we are only allowed outside to meet another person from a different household while respecting social distance at all times.
