Police have been left in 'absolute shock' after shutting down a massive 25-person karaoke party which flouted strict coronavirus lockdown rules.

Derbyshire police were 'absolutely shocked' by the enormous buffet and sound system when they entered the property in Dover Street, Normanton, at 10pm on Saturday.

Despite the scene, however, officers only gave those at the party 'strong words of advice' before dispersing the party.

Mail online has contacted Derbyshire Police for more information.

The extraordinary scene comes as the force is facing charges of 'overzealousness' from ex-MPs, lawyers, and human rights groups.

Officers from Derbyshire Police have been accused of officious muscle-flexing since the Coronavirus Act received Royal Assent last week.

This week, officers poured black dye into a crystal blue lagoon in the Peak District to deter people from making 'non-essential trips'.

In a Facebook post Buxton safer neighbourhood policing team said: 'No doubt this is due to the picturesque location and the lovely weather (for once) in Buxton. However, the location is dangerous and this type of gathering is in contravention of the current instruction of the UK Government.

'With this in mind, we have attended the location this morning and used water dye to make the water look less appealing.'

Local resident Alex John Desmond wrote on Facebook: 'This is a joke, the way this force is acting is not representative of policing by consent which is the way the UK is meant to be governed. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

'You have taken something beautiful and damaged it.'

He added that the force was promoting a culture of 'shaming' individuals, claiming that he was shouted down on his first trip out since lockdown began.

Officers have been given powers to arrest people who are out of their homes on 'non-essential' journeys, with a three-strike fine policy which starts at £60 for a first offence, rises to £120 for the second and reaches £1,000.

Derbyshire Police previously tracked dog walkers, ramblers, and a group posing for Instagram pictures on a cliff top at sunset on Thursday night.

Using the unmanned aircraft they also gathered number plates from parked cars and traced their owners to their homes in Sheffield saying: 'Walking your dog in the Peak District: Not essential.'

Big Brother Watch civil liberties group hit out at the behaviour, alleging: 'It's not at all clear what police powers are being used to do this. It's critical we protect public health and critical we protect basic democratic norms too.

'Arbitrary policing will not help the country to fight this pandemic.'

Derbyshire Police also broke up a picnic and shisha party where eight people were found chomping away on kebabs at Snake Pass in the Peak District on Thursday.

The individuals had travelled hundreds of miles from Manchester, Sheffield and Ipswich to meet, police said - who gave them a stern warning and sent them home.

She explained: 'What people may not realise is the extent of its powers, and how long they can be in place for. It gives the authorities new powers to detain any one of us that they deem to be potentially infected with the coronavirus.

'The breadth of this legislation is also extraordinary.

'It runs to more than 300 pages and includes some spectacular restrictions, including powers to rearrange or cancel elections.

'We'll beat this virus, but these measures must be a last resort in that battle and these powers must be removed as soon as possible. We cannot and must not sacrifice all of our hard-won rights and freedoms.'

Meanwhile, chiefs have encouraged Britons to snitch on neighbours suspected of flouting lockdown rules, with Hampshire, West Midlands, Greater Manchester, and Avon and Somerset creating hotlines and portals for tip-offs.
