Yesterday, a large police presence was in Hatfield following reports of a big group of people congregating and behaving in an anti-social manner, including throwing eggs at cars.
Seven people were arrested in the Comet Way and Galleria area and a Section 35 dispersal order has been put in place.
Inspector Kio Bozorgi said: “This is incredibly reckless behaviour given the current climate and we will be taking robust action against those who have chosen to selfishly disregard the COVID-19 guidance.
"The instructions could not be any clearer – stay at home to save lives and protect the NHS.
“A number of those arrested are under 18 and so I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents to ensure their children are following the rules.”
