Aylesbury 'covidiots' cause fire after breaking lockdown rules for barbecue with friends
Police not happy after incident last night
Police in Aylesbury have criticised a group of 'covidiots' who not only broke strict lockdown rules to have a barbecue with friends on Wednesday evening but also caused a fire in the process.
Officers were on patrol on the Buckingham Park estate after reports of a group of friends having a barbecue in the warm weather near Martin Dalby Way.
The police took to Twitter to highlight the incident after the group disposed of their hot barbecues in a wooded area, causing a fire which required speedy intervention from Bucks Fire and Rescue.
"While it’s clear you shouldn’t be out having a bbq with your friends it’s also not a good idea to dispose of hot bbqs into an area where there are trees!" a police spokesman said.
"Thanks to Bucks Fire for their prompt response to Martin Dalby Way last night."
