Video out of South London shows a UK Metro police officer shutting down a Catholic mass on Good Friday, citing local COVID restrictions.

“Ladies and gentlemen, this gathering, is unfortunately, unlawful under the coronavirus regulations we have currently,” the officer announced to the congregation of the Polish church in Balham.

“You are not allowed to meet inside this many people under law. At this moment in time, you need to go home,” he continued. “Failure to comply with this direction to leave and go to your home address ultimately could lead you to be fined 200 pounds, or if you fail to give your details, to you being arrested.”

After threatening to arrest them, the officer then told the worshipers that while he “appreciates” their desire to worship on Good Friday, the “gathering is unlawful.”

“I suggest ladies and gentlemen, though it is Good Friday, and I appreciate you’d like to worship, that this gathering is unlawful.”

Perhaps more videos like these will surface during Easter Sunday, the holiest day in the Christian calendar.

This comes as thousands of Londoners protest against an upcoming bill that would grant police more power to shut down gatherings and enforce COVID restrictions.
