Police have asked people not to travel to Llandudno to see the now famous Great Orme goats.

The animals have garnered international media attention after videos of them roaming the deserted streets of the town was posted on Twitter.

The footage, which was first brought to light by Manchester Evening News videographer Andrew Stuart, has provided a bit of light relief during the coronavirus lockdown.

However, police have had to remind people that travelling to see them is not classed as essential travel.

In a statement posted on Facebook, North Wales Police said: “It’s great to see the media reaction around the Great Orme Goats that we are very fond of locally.

“However, please do not travel to Llandudno to see them at this time, that would not be essential travel and is putting unnecessary demand on all public services.

“You will be welcome to visit Llandudno to see the residents goats once the restrictions are lifted.”
