Police have said they “deeply” regret the hurt caused when a Good Friday service was shut down for breaching Covid-19 restrictions.

Met Police officers found some worshippers without masks and not socially distancing at Christ the King on Balham High Road, London.

Video of officers addressing the congregation inside the church circulated online.

Det Supt Andy Wadey also addressed the congregation after Mass on Sunday.
