Officers were called to Adelina’s bar and kitchen on Thursday night and forced everyone at the party to leave.

Photos from the night apparently show wedding guests crammed into the bar before the cops arrived to disrupt the rally.

The Swansea Council has issued an immediate closure notice to restaurant owners for failing to protect customers, according to Wales Online.

He now has 14 days to implement new measures, including social distancing of two meters and controlled toilet use.

A South Wales Police spokesperson said: ‘South Wales Police responded to a report of a rally at Adelina’s Bar and Kitchen, Mumbles Road, Swansea, around 7 p.m. 10 Thursday, September 24.

“Upon arrival, officers found a large number of people present at a private reception.

“The function was closed and all participants were ordered to leave.

“Further law enforcement action by the South Wales Police and Swansea Council is currently under consideration.


The rally comes just days before tough new foreclosure rules come into force in Wales.

New measures will be implemented in Cardiff and Swansea County from 6pm Sunday.

The town of Llanelli will also face new restrictions from 6 p.m. Saturday.

People will only be able to meet people they don’t live with outside at the moment – and they won’t be able to leave the area without a reasonable excuse.

Swansea recorded 28 new cases of coronavirus on Friday.

Councilor David Hopkins, delivery and operations cabinet member and deputy chief, said: ‘We told the companies we would take firm action if they did not follow Welsh Government rules.

“The latest lockdown measures mean that it is now more important than ever for businesses to pay attention to the latest regulations so that we can keep the public safe and help prevent the spread of the virus.

“Many businesses in the city are doing the right thing, taking their responsibilities seriously and playing by the rules.

“Those who don’t play by the rules put their communities at risk and that’s unacceptable. ”

The Sun has contacted Adelina’s Bar and Kitchen for comment.
