PIC EXC: Priyanka Chopra and her mother Madhu are caught in the FLOUTING lockdown


Priyanka Chopra was caught violating lockdown measures on Wednesday night when police discovered she was attending a hair appointment at Josh Wood Color salon in Notting Hill.

The 38-year-old Indian actress, who currently resides in London with her 28-year-old husband Nick Jonas, arrived at the store at 4.55pm along with her mother Madhu, owned by the celebrity, stylish Josh Wood who was in attendance before two police officers arrived in a patrol car at 5:22 a.m. and appeared to be ordering customers at 5:35 a.m.

On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that the UK would be pushed into national lockdown with immediate effect, meaning the visit is an obvious rule violation, which says business owners can be fined up to for breaking the rules £ 10,000 could be occupied.

Government guidelines for hair salons under lockdown: “Personal care facilities such as hair, beauty, tanning, and nail salons. Tattoo studios, spas, massage parlors, body and skin piercing services must also be closed. These services should not be performed in other people's homes. "

Priyanka wrapped herself in a warm winter coat as she walked with her mother, who was walking with Priyanka's beloved dog Diana, a Chihuahua mix that often appears on her social media accounts.

When the couple was next to an aide in the store, the police arrived in their patrol car and stood at the door talking to those in the parlor before Priyanka set off for a quick break with a bag of Josh Wood goodies.

MailOnline has asked representatives of Priyanka and police officers for a comment.

The British were warned on Monday that they should "expect more enforcement" from the police under the new lockdown. John Apter, chairman of the Federation of Police of England and Wales, predicted that more fines and less tolerance would be imposed on officials as this time around there are "no excuses" for not knowing the rules.

But he also warned that the police could be classified as "the villains of the pandemic" as they bear the brunt of public fatigue and frustration. Apter said the record number of fines imposed on New Year's Eve shows that more and more young people are willing to break the rules.

Hundreds of partygoers have been hit with fines of up to £ 10,000. Mr Apter said after nearly a year of enforcing Covid restrictions, many officers were "caught" and the armed forces

He added to the lockdown, “It will be easier for the police to have a single rule for people across the country, which means it will be easier for people to understand and obey what is expected of them.

“People should expect more enforcement to come about because this time around, there's really no excuse for not knowing the rules.

“But where it's different from March, we now have a hardcore element that is against the rules. We've had anti-lockdown, anti-vaccine protests and … crime has been increasing since March. The majority of the public will do what is expected of them, but I think there is a real problem with virus and lockdown fatigue …

"There's a real frustration and the police often deal with the sharp end of it as people get angry when challenged." He added, “More and more people are dying and we must do our part to keep infection rates under control.

"The public will expect the police to take action against those who willfully break the rules and endanger others."
