Breaking News ! More than 500 vehicles on the first weekend of the firebreak lockdown were stopped by police in Wales. Wales introduced a two-week series of 'firebreak' measures, which include a ban on the sale of non-essential goods in shops allowed to remain open. The new restrictions came into force at 6pm on Friday and will last until November 9. People can only leave their home for limited reasons, such as to buy food and medicine, provide care or take exercise, and they must work from home where possible.

Similarly, travel into Wales is limited to essential travel only during the firebreak period, for example, travelling for work purposes or to return home. People travelling from an exempt county or territory including England need a reasonable excuse to enter and remain in Wales and must follow the firebreak regulations. Officers stopped the vehicles as part of "proactive patrols" (Image: Gwent Police) This strict measure appears to have been enforced by Gwent Police who confirmed its officers stopped the vehicles as part of "proactive patrols" in communities across the force area of Gwent, which includes Newport, Monmouthshire, Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly and Torfaen.

Discussing its response to the lockdown, the statement from Gwent Police also said: “We know this is a very difficult time for all and we thank members of our community for their continued support as we all work together to keep everyone safe.

For those who knowingly go against these restrictions, we will take enforcement action. “We all have a part to play and here at Gwent Police we will continue to do our very best to protect and reassure our communities.” The coronavirus regulations include provisions for a fixed penalty notice to be issued for most types of breaches of the regulations, carrying a fine of £60; this is increased to £120 for a second offence and continues to double for repeated offences, up to a maximum of £1,920.
