UK Police Close Shisha Bar After Finding Over 150 People Inside

Police in Birmingham closed a shisha lounge after discovering more than 150 people inside, just days after the same venue was fined £10,000 for breaching COVID-19 restrictions.

West Midlands Police said officers forced their way into Kasablanca in Highgate at 1 am on October 24 after being refused entry.

Bodycam footage shows people being urged to leave the venue by the officers.

“We found crowds gathered inside with no social distancing,” a police statement said. “The venue will have to prove it is complying with the law before it can open again.” Credit: West Midlands Police via Storyful
