  1. Good night

    That's all from the live updates team for today - we will be back with more in the morning. The key points today:

  2. Police break up football game

    Police have stopped a group of footballers from playing the game at a Cardiff park.

    Police were called to Roath Recreation Ground by concerned residents and the game was broken up by officers who drove onto the grass.

    A council-owned bus company has announced it will put on extra services on weekday mornings to help NHS staff get to and from work.

    Cardiff Bus said it will make the changes after feedback from customers, especially those travelling to and from the University Hospital of Wales and Llandough Hospital.

  4. New coronavirus testing plan announced

    After a deal between the Welsh Government and a company which would have allowed for an extra 5,000 Covid-19 tests a day to be carried out collapsed, the health minister has unveiled a "new plan" for testing with a wider range of suppliers.

    "It's very disappointing a company with which we had a written agreement to provide tests is not able to honour that agreement," said the Welsh Government.

    Health Minister Vaughan Gething also announced that a new type of test would be rolled out in Wales.

  5. People 'have got the message' and stayed home

    A week after "unprecedented" crowds at Wales' most popular places, people appear to "have got the message" they should stay home due to coronavirus.

    On Monday, the Welsh Government asked everyone to stay at home in a bid to contain coronavirus.

    It came after thousands of people clogged up national parks, parks and beaches in scenes compared to a "bank holiday on steroids" despite warnings to stay home.

    But with warnings all week and police out in force across Wales on Saturday, the crowds have stayed away.

  6. Thinking of going for a drive? Think again

    Police have set up check points across Wales to ask people why they are travelling.

    A police officer manning a check point at Storey Arms in the Brecon Beacons National Park told BBC Wales he had spoken to someone who had travelled from Bristol to walk in the mountains.

    People can be fined for breaking the new rules.

  9. Coronavirus test deal collapses

    A deal between the Welsh Government and a testing company which would allow for an extra 5,000 Covid-19 tests a day to be carried out has collapsed, several sources have told BBC Wales.

    The current testing capacity in Wales is 800 daily tests.

    However the health minister has said that figure will rise to 6,000 next week and 9,000 by the end of April.

    The Welsh Government has been asked to comment. Opposition parties have called for an "urgent" response.

  10. Mint moves to NHS visor production at pace

    The first protective visors for NHS staff working with coronavirus patients have been produced by the Royal Mint.

    The company, based in Llantrisant, Rhondda Cynon Taff, is to make up to 4,000 medical visors a day.

    Engineers developed a successful prototype in 48 hours and the first 750 visors were produced today.

    Normally associated with minting coinage, the mint has already received requests to supply hospitals across the UK.

    Production is now moving to 24 hours a day, seven days a week with a target of getting to full capacity by Tuesday.

    Huw Davies, clinical director for anaesthetics at the nearby Royal Glamorgan Hospital, said staff were "really grateful" for the visors.

    "It was actually quite emotional for our teams when they came in and offered their support and expertise to help keep us safe," he said.

    Dr Robin Howe offered Public Health Wales' condolences to the families and friends affected and reiterated the following message:

    "The single most important action we can all take in fighting Coronavirus is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS, and save lives.

    “We know that staying at home can be hard, and we want to thank each and every person across Wales for doing their bit to help slow the spread of the virus.”

    “Members of the public must adhere to social distancing rules about staying at home, and away from others, introduced by the UK and Welsh Government. These rules are available on the Public Health Wales website.

  14. 'Unnecessary 999 calls putting public at risk'

    Police have seen an increase in calls about potential breaches in government guidelines on social distancing.

    Supt Neil Thomas from North Wales Police said the force had also seen a big rise in calls relating to non-urgent matters and he urged people to only call 999 in an emergency.

    Supt Thomas, who is in charge of the force’s Control Room in St Asaph, Denbighshire, said there had been a "surge" of public calls from people "trying to seek clarification on various issues related to the coronavirus".

    "Unnecessary calls into the control room is having a significant impact on our ability to deal with genuine calls and is putting people’s lives at risk," he said.
