Two youngsters from Leeds (United Kingdom), who staged a massive snowball fight on 14 January, were each fined 10,000 pounds (11,300 euros). Local police speculated on Thursday, 28 January, that they had “violated” the measures taken to limit the spread of Kovid-19 in the country, BBC reports relayed by RTL Info.
The 20 and 23-year-old English appealed on social media to participate in the rally, which was taking place in a city park in northern England. They had managed to score hundreds of people.
