Lockdown restrictions have been eased in Wales today. Previously Wales had adopted a ‘stay local’ requirement that urged members of the public to remain within 5 miles of their home.

Visitors can travel to and from Wales in a major boost to the struggling tourism sector.

First Minister of Wales Mark Drakeford said: “We live in such a beautiful part of the world and I know many of us are looking forward to visiting beaches, the countryside and our many beauty spots.

“People throughout Wales have done so much over the last few months to follow the rules and help reduce the spread of coronavirus – I thank them for their patience and understanding. I ask them to continue in this spirit.

“Unfortunately, over the recent weeks we’ve seen the results of people not treating parts of Wales with respect, with crowds leaving piles of litter in their wake.

“This selfish behaviour is a blight on our beauty spots and puts people at risk. While many footpaths and car parks are reopening, not all facilities will be available in every location straight away.”
