The Welsh Mountain Zoo has revealed when it plans to reopen after a long wait to welcome visitors.

The zoo in Colwyn Bay was forced to close in December when the Welsh Government announced new lockdown measures with coronavirus cases rising in Wales.

Criticism has previously been levelled at ministers due to a lack of information on when visitors attractions like the Welsh Mountain Zoo can open their doors again after the spread of the virus slowed earlier this year.

However, the zoo has now said it intends to reopen from Monday 26 April as long as cases remain low.

In a post on Facebook, it said: “On the basis that the public health conditions remain favourable, we hope to reopen on Monday 26 April.

“We’re currently reviewing our plans in preparation for your safe return and our pre-booking system will be going live soon, so please keep checking our website for updates.

“We can’t wait to throw our gates open again.

“Thank you for your continuing support and understanding.”
