Police claimed they were spat at by members of the public out enjoying their drinks at a pub during “Super Saturday”.
On Super Saturday (July 4) many pubs, restaurants and hairdressers reopened their doors to customers for the first time since March.
This caused the police to patrol the streets even more, to ensure people acted responsibly.
Although many behaved and respected government guidelines, there were a few incidents were people misbehaved.
Hertfordshire Constabulary took to social media to issue a warning, they wrote: “Rather disappointingly, whilst most people yesterday enjoyed themselves as lockdown measures continue to be eased, there were a few incidents where our officers were spat at.
Disappointingly, whilst most people enjoyed themselves yesterday, there were a few incidents where our officers were spat at. Spitting at officers or emergency workers is never acceptable. Anyone doing so should expect to be charged.
