A spokesperson said adults and children were at the party and officers were “met with hostility” when they encouraged people to leave.

A group of people “continued to refuse to co-operate with the officers and began to deliberately cough and spit”.

Seven people, aged between 23 and 48, were arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly and for breach of Covid-19 regulations. Another person was also given a fixed penalty.
