North Wales Police said: "It may be a bank holiday weekend but the rules have not changed.

As high temperatures hit parts of the UK, people in England have been flocking to beaches over the bank holiday weekend after restrictions there were eased.

On Friday the First Minister said: "I continue to ask everyone in Wales to play their part ,to protect themselves, their loved ones and their friends, by following the stay at home rules, which are still firmly in place.

"New and tougher fines are in place for that small minority of people who repeatedly break those lockdown rules.

"Please stay local and stay safe."
