Scottish grandmother, 82, is given £60 ‘anti-social’ Covid fine after police broke-up illegal 70th birthday bash… despite ‘EVERYONE being vaccinated’

  • Maureen Hogg from Eaglesham, was given the notice for antisocial behaviour 
  • Police broke up the 70th birthday party, where all attendees had the vaccine
  • In Scotland, groups of up to four from no more than two households can meet outdoors – regardless of someone’s vaccine status

An 82-year-old grandmother has been slapped with a £60 fine for attending a lockdown-breaching 70th birthday party.

Maureen Hogg, from Eaglesham, East Renfrewshire, was given the notice for antisocial behaviour after police broke up the celebration.

All attendees of the party in Eaglesham had both doses of the Covid-19 jab – but each one received a fine for £60.

Under Scotland’s lockdown rules, groups of up to four from no more than two households can meet outdoors – regardless of someone’s vaccine status.

But the party attended by Mrs Hogg was held indoors. 

When police came to disperse the group, she was handed a notice under the Antisocial Behaviour Act of 2004.

Ms Hogg’s granddaughter Daisy Hogg shared a picture of her grandmother’s fine to Twitter, writing: ‘Howling that my 82-year-old Gran got a covid fine cause she got caught at a gaff for someone’s 70th. 

‘Taken home by the police and everything, she is who I aspire to be like at 82.’

Daisy later added: ‘I hope I’m partying like her at that age.’

‘I thought it was funny, my Mum and Dad did too.’

Every party attendee had received two doses of a coronavirus vaccine. Even so, all received fines of £60 for their ‘antisocial behaviour’, Daisy said. 

Alongside her tweet, Daisy attached a picture of her family group chat which shows a message from her mother, saying: ‘Gran has been charged with antisocial behaviour by Police Scotland.’

A shocked Daisy replied to the message saying: ‘Seriously.’
