Safety measures will be "more important than ever" as travel restrictions in Wales are eased, Plaid Cymru has said.

The party said supported the "stay local" rule, but wanted more flexibility, which the Welsh government has now provided.

Rhun ap Iorwerth MS said: “Now that guidelines on limits are to be lifted altogether, what’s important is what people do at their destination.

"Distancing, handwashing and the wearing of face coverings now become more, not less, important."

He also called for a firming up of face covering rules in enclosed areas, and clarity on the support available if lockdown measures need to be brought back.
