The West Mercia Police have gotten ‘rains of tongue lashes’ after posing for photos with 200 wedding guests and their super cars instead of fining them for breaking corona rules.
The three cops were seen kneeling on the street as wedding guests grinned behind them by their super cars in Wellington, Telford.
According to reports by Birmingham Mail, the ceremony had been held in Telford before the wedding party travelled to Birmingham – with more than 200 people packing into the five-star Crystal Plaza conference centre in the city.
The police had been called to the two day event in Telford when they posed with a at least 15 guests as well as their Rolls Royce Phantoms and Lamborghinis.
Clearing the air, Chief Supt Sue Thomas, of West Mercia Police, said: “As part of their engagement with the wedding party our officers agreed to pose for a photo.
But the problem was Social distancing.
