A woman named Oceania has been fined thousands for holding a house party in Barnet while Covid restrictions were in place.

Oceania Alfa, of Saddlers Close in Arkley, was accused of holding the gathering of more than 30 people at her home on March 14 this year.

It took place while the area was in Tier 4 - which banned such indoor gatherings.

The 26-year-old initially pleaded not guilty before admitting the offence on October 30 this year.

She was given a £3,750 fine as well as a £375 victim services charge and £100 costs - taking the total to £4,225.
