Abraham, Sancho, Chilwell Escape Police Investigation For Breaching Coronavirus Rules

Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho will not be investigated by the police after breaching coronavirus rules by attending a party on Saturday.

However, the trio will miss England’s Thursday clash against Wales for celebrating Abraham’s birthday at his London flat.

They could have been fined up to £10,000 after breaching the government’s ‘rule of six’.

But a statement from the Metropolitan Police on Tuesday said: “As a matter of course the MPS [Metropolitan Police Service] is not investigating COVID-related issues retrospectively.

“Where we become aware of a breach occurring, officers will seek to engage, explain and encourage people to follow the rules, only enforcing as a last resort.

“Where alleged breaches are brought to our attention after the event, officers will not have not had the opportunity to engage, explain or encourage, and those involved will not have had the opportunity to respond positively to that process – as most people do.

“Therefore, it would not be appropriate or an effective use of resources in most circumstances to investigate or pursue enforcement. We encourage everyone to make themselves aware of, and to follow, the rules.”

According to Sky Sports, England boss Gareth Southgate is furious at the three players and despite the police decisions, the FA is continuing its investigation into the players’ attendance at the party.
