Police continue patrols on Barry Island

 

South Wales Police officers are continuing patrols on Barry Island over the days to come.

It follows the temporary closure of Car Parks on the resort this morning by South Wales Police and Vale of Glamorgan Council.

A spokesperson for the Vale of Glamorgan Council said: “The car parks at Barry Island were closed temporarily today. These have now been reopened for those that have a legitimate reason to use them and to prevent irresponsible parking in the surrounding residential areas. Our resort team will be supporting South Wales Police in their enforcement work in the coming days. We urge everyone to please follow the Level 4 Alert guidelines that state all exercise should not involve travel and should begin and end from home.” 

In recent days, numerous reports of crowds of people at beaches and other beauty spots across the County have circulated social media.

In a statement, South Wales Police said "Please remember that Welsh Government restrictions state that exercise should start and finish at your home – you shouldn’t be driving to these places."
