Covid: ‘Christmas Day’ for families as Wales lifts travel ban

Wales has become the first UK nation to lift travel restrictions within its borders.

The “stay local” rule has been scrapped from Saturday in favour of unlimited travel within the country.

But travel outside Wales will not be allowed until a Welsh government review on Thursday, which could see it permitted from 12 April.

Tourism operators offering self-contained accommodation are expecting a busy weekend after a winter lockdown.

What am I allowed to do?

Six people from two households are able to meet outside, an increase from the current four-person limit.

Organised outdoor activities and sports for under-18s can resume and libraries and archives can reopen their doors.

Rules also allow a limited opening of outdoor areas of some historical places and gardens.

'Stay-local' ends in Wales

Police forces across Wales urged people to “play their part and follow the Welsh government regulations”.

Scotland’s stay-at-home rules become “stay local” on Good Friday and Northern Ireland’s stay-at-home message is to be relaxed on 12 April.

England’s stay-at-home rule will end on Monday, although the UK government is urging people to stay local as much as possible, but one walker from England travelled to north Wales on Saturday and said he knew he was breaking the rules.
