Police broke up an illegal lockdown bank holiday Monday birthday party at the house of a Tory MP, the Mirror can reveal.
Two people who were visiting the house of Rob Roberts, MP for Delyn in North Wales, were asked to leave.
There were balloons and banners outside the house marking a 40th birthday.
It is understood that Mr Roberts’ wife Alexandra turned 40 on Monday.
Superintendent Mark Pierce of North Wales Police told the Mirror: “In response to two reports of a possible breach of Covid 19 regulations we visited an address at Ty’n y Coed, Mold, yesterday (Monday).
“When we called at the property two people visiting the house left following advice and no further action was taken.”
There has been no lifting of the lockdown rules in Wales where – as in England – you are not allowed to visit other households.
A spokesperson for Mr Roberts said: “Rob Roberts was not present at the time.
“His family have been reminded of the guidelines set out by the government.”
Mr Roberts, who recently came out as LGBT, is understood to have spent the bank holiday weekend in London and returned to the family home this afternoon (Tuesday).
He has since tweeted that he and his wife “separated 6 weeks ago when I came out”.
Mr Roberts tweeted on Monday morning that he wanted a “proper investigation” of the Dominic Cummings scandal.
He said on Facebook : “Of course it is right that we cannot have one rule for one and another for the rest …
“If Mr Cummings has acted inappropriately according to an investigation, then he should go.
“If an investigation concludes that he hasn’t, then he shouldn’t.
“The media doesn’t get to call the shots on who is hired and fired.”
But later he added: “Having watched the statement from Mr Cummings, I believe that he seemed to be entirely acting in the best interests of his child as a responsible husband and father… It is now time for us all to move on from this issue.”
In a series of tweets on May 17, International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, Mr Roberts said: “So I hope we can try harder to influence other countries across the world to improve their treatment of the LGBT community, and continue to take steps to improve attitudes in the UK so that we can be free to be ourselves without anxiety or fear.
“There. I may have alluded to it before, but never said it. I’m no longer afraid to be who I am.
“On this day, it feels particularly poignant and a good time to say it.”
