POLICE were called to suspicions of a 'lock in' at the Fernhill Heath Memorial Club, but say there was no evidence to suggest Covid restrictions has been breached.

Sgt Simon Hallam of West Mercia Police said: “Officers were called on 13th February at about 13:15 GMT to reports of a potential breach of Covid-19 regulations at a site in Fernhill Heath, near Droitwich.

"Officers attended and found no breach of the regulations had taken place.”

At the beginning of the month pop up test centres appeared to test residents in Fernhill Heath after a South Africa variant of the virus was found.

According to the council over 6,000 people had a test or used a home testing kit.

Speaking about the testing, Dr Kathryn Cobain, director of Public Health for Worcestershire, said: “The response from our residents has been amazing. Over 6,000 people have been offered a test, either at one of the two test sites or one of the home tests that were delivered.

"We are really delighted by this response so I want to say a big thank you to residents who have been determined to help us reduce the spread of this virus. The widespread testing in these areas will allow us to identify cases and stop the spread of the virus.”
