Four people caught inhaling laughing gas in a car told police they were “just chilling”.
A group of people from different households were caught breaking lockdown rules by sitting in a car together and inhaling nitrous oxide, telling police they were “just chilling”.
The quartet were rumbled by police when they were found in the same vehicle parked at The Beacon countryside park in Skelmersdale, Lancashire Police said. The result? Fixed Penalty Notices for lockdown rule breaking!
