Police say they will be prosecuted as will their parental guardians.
Warrington Police posted the following on social media on Friday night.....
We have attended reports of a group of youths coughing at NHS staff stating they have Coronavirus.
The youths will be prosecuted as will their parental guardians.
This is an absolutely abhorrent incident involving abuse of our NHS heroes.
I will once again urge all parents and persons with parental responsibility to make sure that their children STAY INSIDE. You too can and will be prosecuted if you fail to keep your children inside.
