An angry pub owner posted a sign on his meetinghouse bulletin board telling villagers to leave after being reported to police.

Customs officer Keith Waterhouse posted an explosive note on the billboard at Bridgetown Parish Hall in Somerset after one of his neighbors reported him to police after his daughter joined his Covid-19 bubble with her children
Mr Waterhouse, who ran the Badgers Holt bar pictured, said he did not break Covid-19 regulations as his daughter and her family were eligible to join his protective bubble
& # 39; Second, oh damn it.
"Keith in the pub."
Mr Waterhouse, who has been running the pub with his wife for 15 years, explained the reason for the police visit.
"We have had two occasions so far that the police have had contact," he said.
“We have a single daughter who is in our bladder. She came to us in August and an angry, vengeful person in the village called the police.
The officers contacted me and I explained that she can come here because she is a single parent and she can do it.
“Now she's back to live in the moment, and she's allowed again as a single parent with young children. It's completely within the Covid-19 rules.
“Somebody here contacted the police so they came all the way from Minehead to see me.
"I talked to you quite happily and told you that she can be here, she lives here now."
Police have told Mr. Waterhouse that he is not breaking any rules.
"The note is pretty aggressive," he added. "I don't bother to hold back or anything."
Current UK government coronavirus restrictions allow someone with another household to form a support bubble if they are a single adult living with one or more children under the age of 18.
Mr Waterhouse said he did not know who reported him but said he would find out.
He continued, “I haven't done anything to anyone, so I don't know why they are like this and why they have to take an attitude and do this.
& # 39; You should have asked what the situation is like first; I'm here all the time and I'm happy to tell people about the situation.
& # 39; But instead someone contacted the police; I do not need that. & # 39;
Mr. Waterhouse, a former science teacher, town vendor and councilor, added, “I'm big enough to take this, I've been around for a long time, and I won't take it.
“I've been through a lot of things in my life. These many bozos who do that are way below my grade for me. & # 39;
A spokeswoman for Avon and Somerset Police Department confirmed that officers were visiting Mr Waterhouse's home and that no crime had been recorded.
