Among them was a family that had driven for five hours from their home in Sussex, only to be stopped by officers in Carmarthenshire. When questioned, the family admitted they were travelling for non-essential reasons, and were escorted back to the border by the police. Other cases include a man from Rotherham in Yorkshire, who told officers he had broken the lockdown rules because he wanted to “climb Mount Snowdon alone”. He was instructed to leave North Wales immediately. Since the ‘fire break’ lockdown was introduced on Friday, all non-essential travel in Wales is now prohibited, and land borders are closed. The Welsh Government advises that those caught breaking the new laws may have to pay a fixed penalty of £60 – rising to £120 for a second breach – and face criminal proceedings.
