I am just so surprised at the paltry fines given out to people who blatantly disregard the Covid-19 restrictions.

That young lad back from Ibiza put himself in the firing line by not self-isolating and having a party on his return.

He was probably not the main reason for the incredible coronavirus spike in Bolton, but he has become the easy target and made a scapegoat.

But only to be fined £1,000. Really?!

Then there’s the bar in Nelson Square which also does not follow the rules and is fined just £100 - probably less than an hour’s takings!

Business and employees in Bolton have lost a lot more than a total of £1,100 in this latest lockdown! There should be harsher punishments.
