'Reckless' youths fined for partying amid restrictions

FIVE young people have each been fined $1334.50 after they were busted having a "noisy party" at a Maroochydore hotel, despite social distancing directives.

Sunshine Coast Acting Superintendent Jason Overland said the group was using the room for a party and each youth was consequently given individual fines for "wilfully, recklessly and selfishly" breaching directives.

COP'S WARNING IF YOU 'BLATANTLY' DISOBEY RULES

Act Supt Overland said the youths claimed to have no knowledge of the pandemic or the directions to maintain social distancing. 

More to come.
