    Vandalised property

    Holiday accommodation which was being offered to key workers who cannot go home to their families has been vandalised according to North Wales Police.

    We reported earlier how local people have cleaned and painted over the "go home" messages scrawled on homes in Pwllheli, Gwynedd.

    A police statement said: "The owners of the properties and the key workers are making a significant sacrifice to contribute to the collective response to the coronavirus outbreak.

    "From our patrols we can say that the vast majority of seasonal properties are not occupied by tourists and have been given up to local people.

    "Now more than ever we cannot afford to divert our stretched emergency services away from the work of collectively tackling this pandemic.

    "Ask yourself how you would feel returning to this after a long shift keeping the community safe."

  10. Traffic cameras show quieter roads

  12. Health minister welcomes UK PPE plans

    Vaughan Gething

    Wales' Health Minister Vaughan Gething has welcomed the new strategy from the UK government to get personal protective equipment (PPE) to health workers.

    Mr Gething said: "It makes sense the four UK nations work together on procurement of PPE rather than compete against each other."

    He said 8 million extra pieces of PPE had been delivered in Wales and the Welsh Government was working with military planners to refine its distribution plans.

    On Friday, UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said PPE would be delivered daily to frontline workers across the country.

  13. Vandals daub 'go home' on resort properties

    'Go home' daubed on three properties

    A Pwllheli councillor said he was "embarrassed" to be from the Gwynedd tourist resort town when he learned vandals had painted the word "go home" on properties.

    Hefin Underwood was one of the first on the scene painting over the graffiti which he branded as "an act of vandalism".

    North Wales Police has been asked to comment.

    Mr Underwood said the area needed tourists but just "not now".

    "There are big and small businesses that depend on the work that tourists and second homes bring to the area and Gwynedd as a whole," he said.

  14. Owners urged to keep dogs on a lead

    Carmarthenshire council is calling on dog owners to keep their pets on a lead while out walking to ensure social distancing rules are followed.

    "By putting your dog on a lead, it will make sure they are under control at all times and prevent you having to chase after them and possibly running into someone else’s space," it said

    Gwynedd council said it was "more important than ever" that people looked after their local environment, such as cleaning up after their pets.

  15. Lockdown penalties 'aren't enough of a deterrent'

    Fines issued to people who break coronavirus lockdown rules need to be greater, the Dyfed-Powys police and crime commissioner has said.

    Dafydd Llywelyn said current penalties "aren't enough of a deterrent".

    People found to be breaking the rules can be fined £60, although this is reduced to £30 if paid within 14 days.

    On Friday, First Minister Mark Drakeford said he would be prepared to look at the issue if asked to do so by police forces.

    Meanwhile, patrol officers at Anglesey said they stopped some vehicles on Britannia Bridge, which links the island with the mainland, and found a couple of drivers with "poor excuses" for being on the road.

    In Bridgend, police tweeted that they would prosecute people on non essential journeys.
