British singer Rita Ora faces COVID fine as 30th birthday breaches lockdown

British singer Rita Ora apologized on Monday after she attended a party to celebrate her 30th birthday in breach of England’s strict COVID-19 lockdown rules.

The pop star, best known for her hits “Hot Right Now” and “Your Song,” said in an Instagram story she had gone to “a small gathering with some friends” to celebrate her birthday.

“This was a serious and inexcusable error of judgement,” Ora said. “Given the restrictions, I realise how irresponsible these actions were and I take full responsibility.”

England is currently in lockdown to stop the spread of COVID-19, prohibiting people from different households from mixing indoors, unless they are part of the same household or support bubble. Pubs and restaurants have also been closed except for take-aways.
