On the 16th April 2020 at 8PM uniformed Police officers from around Scarborough gathered at the main entrance of Scarborough Hospital and flagrantly broke the law. The gathering was not essential for work purposes.
The law in question is The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 under which the gathering was illegal. Section 7 of the law states:
