Footage that emerged on social media on Friday shows two Metropolitan Police officers suspending the pre-Easter service at the Christ the King Polish Roman Catholic Church in Balham.

One of the members of the church invited the officer to the sanctuary to explain to the congregation why the service was being disrupted.

The Met officer outlined that gatherings “with this many people” are unlawful under the government’s coronavirus restrictions.
