A 23-year-old man from Bolton has been fined £1,000 after failing to quarantine after returning from a holiday in Ibiza on Thursday, August 20.

Spain is one of the countries the government has imposed a 14-day quarantine regulation on for travellers arriving back to the UK.

Police say the man had left his home on numerous occasions as well as holding a house party where a number of people attended.

After being reported for breaching the strict self-isolation regulations, he was stopped a few days later by a police officer.

He was issued with a fixed penalty notice of £1,000.

Chief Inspector Nicola Williams of Greater Manchester Police, said: "Due to the rise in cases in Bolton the area has been put in to further lockdown regulations. This shows the importance of following the regulations and quarantining on return to the UK is just one of the areas people can help stop the spread.

"The actions of this man were completely irresponsible, not only was he leaving the house while he should been self-isolating, he also held a house party, which breached further regulations and subsequently put others at risk. "We must all continue to play our part in reducing the spread of Covid-19 and our action towards this individual should serve as a stark warning to any others who believe that they can blatantly ignore COVID-19 regulations without consequence."
