Coronavirus: Police ‘break up birthday party’ at Tory MP Rob Roberts’s house

The family of a Conservative MP have been reminded of the coronavirus lockdown guidelines following reports police broke up an illegal birthday party at his house.

Delyn MP Rob Roberts confirmed his family were “reminded of the guidance set out by the government”, which still currently forbid people to visit others in their homes.

He added he was “200 miles away” in London at the time.

The Daily Mirror reported that two people were asked to leave Mr Roberts’s home in North Wales on Bank Holiday Monday following a visit by police.

“In response to two reports of a possible breach of COVID-19 regulations we visited an address at Ty’n y Coed, Mold, yesterday,” superintendent Mark Pierce of North Wales Police told the newspaper.

“When we called at the property two people visiting the house left following advice and no further action was taken.”

According to the Daily Mirror, there were balloons and banners outside the house on Monday marking a 40th birthday, said to be the age of Mr Roberts’s wife.

In a series of tweets marking the International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia earlier this month, Mr Roberts revealed he was now “no longer afraid to be who I am”.
