A HOLIDAYMAKER from Tonge Moor has been fined for failing to self-isolate.

Officers from the Bolton North Neighbourhood Policing team have handed out a £1,000 fine to a 35-year-old man from the area.

He is believed to have returned from a holiday in Turkey, and did not stick to the 14-day self-isolation requirement.

Greater Manchester Police have handed out at least three other fines to people in Bolton who failed to self-isolate.

Layton Migas, a 23-year-old from Doffcocker, was the first to be fined £1,000, after coming back from Ibiza on August 20.

He hit the headlines after appearing in national newspapers to talk about the summer, which saw him reported for leaving his home on numerous occasions – even holding a house party for friends he'd been away with.

An unnamed man in his 40s was also fined £1,000 for failing to quarantine when he returned from Spain on September 20.

The businessman, from Horwich, returned to work at his business, where he was visited by police on September 22, and handed the fine.

A woman from Darwen was also slapped with a fine after returning to her job at a high school in Bolton, two days after she returned from Amsterdam.

The woman – aged in her 20s – was also visited by officers on September 22 and fined.

A self-isolation period of 14 days is a requirement of anyone arriving back to the UK after international travel, with the exception of certain countries.

Those that are required to self-isolate may be contacted by Public Health England to check they are following the regulations.

If there is no response after a number of attempts of trying to make contact, the details of the individual will be referred to the police by Border Force.

Reports are also received from members of the public about people who are suspected of failing to quarantine.
