A FAMILY ignored the lockdown restrictions and held a birthday party in Great Horton.

West Yorkshire Police said they attended the address last night (Saturday) and witnessed between 25 and 30 extended family and friends celebrating the occasion, despite social distancing rules banning such get-togethers.

Police also said they dealt with a pub landlord who had decided to have a lock-in and 'let a couple of mates pop over for a few beers and a game of pool'.

A spokesman for the police said: "What part of #StayHomeSaveLives do people not understand?"
