This week saw the end of the case against The Rev Shaun Everest who was found guilty of three charges by a judge on Tuesday, June 7, after he breached Covid regulations by gathering with people inside the Mustard Seed cafe and bookshop in Main Road, Gedling, on November 14, 2020.

He was convicted of a Covid-19 breach, where there was a gathering of two or more people not in the same household or bubble, obstructing a police officer and failing to disperse when instructed by acting Inspector Paul Whitehead.

The defendant was fined £180 for the obstruction, and £60 each on the remaining two charges. And he was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £34 and to pay prosecution costs of £620 after a trial.
