It seems that one pub in England did not understand the rules when pubs were told they must close.

And Police have managed to catch them in the act as revellers scrambled to hide in cupboards as officers descended on the pub.

Pubs were ordered to shut weeks ago to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

While many of us cannot wait to get out and have a beer with friends we’re all staying at home to save lives and protect the NHS.

But one pub did not close and has been letting regulars in for a pint.

Cops were shocked to find a group of people breaking the lockdown rules and drinking within the pub.

Police received an anonymous tipoff that The Pitsmoor Hotel in Sheffield was still open for business with many heading there for a pint.

When officers turned up they found people hiding all over the pub even in cupboards to avoid being captured and fined.

South Yorkshire Police liquor licensing manager John O’Malley said “Officers attended the premises and found a number of people hiding in cupboards. The pub was clearly still open for business.

“What makes this more significant, is that the license holder has already been served a prohibition notice under the legislation for another premise.

“Licences for both venues are now under review by ourselves and Sheffield City Council, so there could be long-term implications for these businesses.”
