A witness called the authorities at around 2:30am, with a patrol immediately attending the property in Maria Cubi street in Barcelona.

The weekend party, celebrating ‘Alicia’s 28th birthday’ according to banners, was disbanded with troops taking details of all attendees.

All 58 identified have been issued public health administrative penalties for violating restrictions to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

Only last week, the Olive Press revealed that statistics show an alarming spread of COVID-19 among the young.
