Manchester United legend Paul Scholes hosted a big party on his son's 21st birthday, although more blocking rules were imposed in Oldham.
The football coach celebrated the celebrations for his son Arron's 21st with full force, although on the same day, regulations to block corona viruses were issued in the northwest.
The party at Scholes’s £ 3.5 million Oldham house is said to have started at 7 p.m. and continued until 2:30 p.m., The Sun reported.

The birthday party took place just 19 hours before the introduction of the new blackout rules on Thursday at midnight.
People across the Northwest have been banned from congregating in other people's houses or gardens, including Oldham, which has introduced stricter barring restrictions.
Photos posted on his daughter Alicia Scholes' Instagram show participants who disregard social distance while dancing and posing for pictures.
An Instagram user commented on Alicia's posts: "How does Arron celebrate a party in your house when Oldham is locked between two households?"
Tory MP Andrew Bridgen has since accused the former English midfielder of "ruthless behavior".
He said: “A role model who wore an English shirt 66 times would be expected to take a much more responsible stance.
“The people of Oldham are fully aware that reckless behavior like this has caused the return to closure.
"While young people are less likely to experience serious complications when they are infected, they can pass them on to someone who may experience very serious consequences."
Some people living near Scholes, 45, also accused him of "ignoring all the rules" and added that the party was "insane".

One person claimed that the family would initially host a "big party in a hotel," but canceled after the new advice was announced.
The local said to The Sun: "It's insane. They ignored all the rules because they wanted to continue with it.
"What about all the people who couldn't go to funerals or get married to their friends because of the ban?
"Many people had to cancel their birthday parties – why is Paul Scholes & # 39; son different?
"Paul has the reputation of a down-to-earth, normal man. He is loved by millions of United fans and should set an example. & # 39;
The local also said that because of his "selfish behavior", Scholes should "hang his head ashamed" since the party goers could now "potentially infect" others.
Oldham introduced stricter coronavirus restrictions after cases increased by 240 percent in some cases.
Official NHS statistics show that 119 people were diagnosed with Covid-19 in the Greater Manchester city up to July 25, a rate of 50.5 cases per 100,000 people.
The council presidents have asked all 235,000 residents of the district not to let visitors into their home for at least two weeks.

They are committed to "preventing strict local closures from being introduced," as is the case in Leicester, which has not yet been released from the restrictions.
Anyone living in the Greater Manchester area was asked to be two meters from friends and family when they saw them outside.
Greater Manchester's deputy chief of police, Nick Bailey, urged people to follow new regulations for coronaviruses.
He said: “We understand the frustration of not being able to continue social life or visiting friends and family. However, the risk of a coronavirus persists and participation in large group events violates Covid legislation.
"The only way to stay safe and protect your family and loved ones is to follow the guidelines."
Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said: “Anyone can get corona virus and anyone can spread it.
“That is why it is so important that everyone respects the new restrictions. This includes not seeing friends and family in each other's houses and gardens. & # 39;
The local council said that a significant proportion of the recent cases affected multiple people who tested positive within one household.

Arooj Shah, vice-chair of the Oldham Council, said: “We urge residents to take the risk of a corona virus seriously and adhere to the guidelines.
“We know that people across Oldham are keen to see their friends and family and want to get back to normal.
"However, these restrictions are essential to stop the spread of the coronavirus and prevent strict local blocking from being introduced, as we have seen elsewhere in the country."
Hosting a party at your home is illegal under government regulations, which means that participants can be fined £ 100 and the police can close the meeting.
Katrina Stephens, director of public health at Oldham, asked anyone with symptoms of the coronavirus – namely fever, persistent cough, or loss of taste and smell – to take a test.
She added, "If we all do our part and stick to the restrictions now, we can help stop the spread of the corona virus and protect ourselves and our loved ones."
