Two men have been fined for breaking Covid rules after being caught making an unnecessary trip from Birmingham to Coventry – just to get a takeaway.
It was discovered the pair also didn’t live at the same address and were not in the same bubble.
A social media post from West Midlands Police Force Support Unit told of the rule breaking.
The tweet read: “This evening #TeamCCovFSU issued two Covid fines to two young men in Coventry, not of the same address or bubble, who thought it acceptable to travel from Birmingham to Coventry in order to purchase a takeaway and return to Birmingham. #ProtectTheNHS#COVID19 ”
A follow up tweet read: “Team C Tipton. I did hear the takeaways in Coventry were good but…..i know the cost will be a lesson they will remember.”
According to current Covid regulations you are not permitted to mingle with anyone not is your household or your support bubble. Unnecessary trips are also forbidden with travel only allowed for work, essential shopping and for medical purposes.
Though the kebabs in Coventry are nice they are not scientifically proven to have any medicinal qualities.

It isn’t the first time someone from outside the city has travelled here to sample our culinary delights.
Last month a man drove from from Exeter on the south coast to Coventry for a kebab before crashing on the M5 with his wife and kids in the car.
Other Covid rule breaking stories have seen a man fined for cutting hair from his van in Warwick, a businessman driving over 100 miles to see about setting up a new business and a group who travelled from Coventry to a Dorset beauty spot.
