Police in Madrid Fine Halloween Discoteque Curfew Flouters Gathered Outside a Nightclub after Curfew.
Dozens of young people at the gates of a Madrid nightclub to celebrate a Halloween party in blatant disregard of any social distancing rules and past the curfew time. Police were alerted by members of the public and took names and addresses of everyone.
Thousands of euros of fines were administered with some parents of the party-goers turning up at the nightclub to pick up their offspring and paying the on-the-spot fine for them. Many were furious and couldn’t believe their sons and daughters would put other people and themselves in such a dangerous position- Madrid is one of Spain’s COVID ‘hotspots’.

On Saturday night, police in Madrid broke up over 105 private parties, issuing yet again thousands of euros in fines- many officers were apparently seen shaking their heads in disbelief at the revellers.
The most prominent intervention took place in a nightlife venue in the District of Ciudad Lineal where, after 1.30 am in the morning, music continued to blast out, with people inside and the doors firmly closed. After various attempts at gaining entry, police had to call in firefighters to break down the doors. The owners quickly opened up when they heard on the radio which door was to be forced open, according to the sources.
