Police stop cars in parks and beauty spots while checking that drivers are complying with coronavirus lockdown rules

Police have been patrolling parks and beauty areas across Wales as level 4 coronavirus restrictions remain in place.

In Wales, there are a number of restrictions in place to reduce the number of coronavirus cases across the country.

The restrictions state that training should start and end from your home and no one should travel unless clearly necessary.

Officials have been patrolling various parts of the country over the weekend to make sure people are obeying the rules.

In Cardiff, police were pictured in a parking lot next to Pontcanna Fields to speak to drivers and determine that all journeys were essential.

The officers also checked vehicles on Rhiwbina Hill.

South Wales Police Cardiff tweeted: “Llanishen Police Station officers were on Rhiwbina Hill conducting vehicle stop checks.

“The drivers are asked if their trip is important.”

Officers in Bridgend

Officers in Bridgend posted a video patrolling the snow.

One tweet said, “The Bridgend NVV patrols our town and country. Everyone is pretty quiet and most of us are following the guidelines.”

In the Gwent Police Department, officers were sent to Tintern, according to reports from people traveling from outside the area, but the officers reported that the parking lots there were empty.

Merthyr police said they were patrolling Llwyn-onn reservoir Sunday afternoon to make sure everyone was following government guidelines.

On Saturday, officials in the city said they had fined eight people who stopped at their Cardiff home after a “day trip” to Brecon in Merthyr.

They fined the site and warned, “This is NOT an essential trip.”

In North Wales, a driver stopped by the police has been found to have drugs in his system and violate Covid rules.

The driver and two passengers had driven more than 50 miles from Llandudno to Wrexham under the influence of drugs.

The trio has now been reported for its actions.

A total of 42,675 fixed criminal complaints were issued in England and Wales between the end of March and January 17, including 4,223 in Wales.

Eighty percent of these coronavirus reports have been directed to people between the ages of 18 and 39.

The numbers were said to be higher than the sentences imposed in previous lockdowns, reflecting a shift in the collective policing approach to the rules.
