North Wales Police deals with 100 reports and queries relating to Covid regulations in one day

North Wales news and information

Police in North Wales were kept busy yesterday after dealing with approximately 100 reports and queries relating to the Covid regulations.

Officers have said that people are still making unnecessary journeys, particularly to beauty spots in the region.

Numerous warnings have been put out over the last few weeks with all of Wales under alert level 4 restrictions, which advise that you should stay at home unless absolutely necessary.

It follows people ignoring road blocks in countryside locations, which led to police having to rescue a man from Ellesmere Port whose car skidded off the road near Moel Famau in treacherous conditions.

North Wales Police has issued a further reminder today, encouraging the public to observe the rules.

The force said: “The restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID19 are there to protect us all.

“Every single one of us – and it’s vital that everyone takes personal responsibility by staying home unless they have a valid reason not to be there. Do the right thing.”

FAQs from the Welsh Government on the rules can be found here.

If you need to report a possible breach, you can use this web form on the North Wales Police website.
