A SNOOKER hall in Bolton was fined £1,000 by Bolton's covid patrols over the weekend.

Police and council officers making up the town's crack covid team were out over the weekend to enforce regulations designed to stop the spread of coronavirus.

No details have yet been released on why the snooker hall, which has not been named, was fined.

A statement issued by Bolton Council yesterday said: "Greater Manchester Police and Bolton Council Regulatory Service teams have had another busy weekend in the fight against the pandemic, and ensuring the spread is minimised through our night time and food sectors.

"The partners would like to thank the licensees and businesses for their continuing support in keeping their customers and residents safe.

"The vast majority of licensed premises, and all the takeaways visited were compliant and it was evident that a great deal of energy had been committed in doing so.

"However, where there is non-compliance, the police and council will not hesitate in tackling these businesses, and to that end a snooker hall in Bolton was served a £1000 Fixed Penalty Notice during the weekend."
