Cop Can't Stop Smiling After 18 Pals Brake Lockdown Rules
BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND — Lockdown rules in the U.K. right now are confusing at the best of times. Under the current lockdown restrictions, Boris Johnson has permitted unlimited outdoor exercise, however, social distancing rules must still be followed.
What this means is that if you exercise outside, you must do so with members of your household, however, some have gotten creative.
This is the bizarre moment a group of 18 mates pretended to exercise after they were caught breaking lockdown rules by coppers.
The footage, believed to have been recorded in Birmingham was posted by Mr. Craft and it shows the cop crack a smile as the crowd break into star jumps and jumping jacks as he approaches.
The video went viral with some thinking it was hilarious while others condemned the group for gathering during the lockdown.
One netizen said, 'My heart breaks for those working in the frontline. They sacrifice their lives to save ours and you cannot do the bare minimum of staying home.'
Another added, 'I just hope they're not in a hospital in a few weeks on a respirator thinking to themselves how did I catch COVID-19 and give it to my family?'
A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said, 'We are policing in unprecedented times. Our officers have been asked to implement new laws relating to Covid-19 and restrictions on people's movement.
'The legislation was passed very quickly, with little time for formal training, and given the circumstances officers have done a great job engaging with the public, educating them on the new laws, and enforcing the law where necessary.'
