Of 14,000 fines for breaking lockdown rules in England and Wales, 862 were repeat fines.
One person has been fined 9 times. Even if neighbours held a grudge and coppers were over- zealous, that's some special person there.
The figures cover the period before the fine increased from £60 to £100, so it's only cost the 9 timer £540....should have been at least that much each time shouldn't it?

No, it get doubled. So it's £60 first offence, £120 second offence, £240 third offence, £480 for a 4th offence, £960 for a 5th offence and there was a maximum of £1920 I think.

The new rates are £100, £200, £400, £800, £1.600 and a maximum of £3.200 for all subsequent ones.

In Wales it's £30.

Of course, the maximum fine is death.

Yeah sadly more often the death of others and not the idiots.
(I saw that about the doubling - but I thought doubling only came in from this week - too late anyway, people will be (officially) doing what they like soon. In terms of the virus, what's actually changed?.....apart from the 'R' number having actually gone up slightly).

Mrs 12th was telling me she'd read about a landlord who'd had the police force them to close on eight separate occasions. Surely after two or three their licence should be revoked?

Speaking of pubs, I hope that when they do re-open, it's a 6pm closing time. The last thing we need in this country right now is drunken idiots clogging up the NHS A&E services. As soon as pubs open normally, it will happen. So let's ease people back in slowly and open for meals at lunch time and early evening.

It'd make sense to reopen on a weekday to ease that first frenzy, I think. If it's a Saturday, we're planning that I take the following week off and have a couple of pints every time we walk the dog instead!
