    A car park has been shut following illegal gatherings in the Vale of Glamorgan.

    The council said the car park at Rivermouth, Ogmore-by-Sea, will remain shut until 6 July following "unacceptable" mass gatherings and antisocial behaviour there and in Barry.

    Temporary road closures will remain in place with access for residents only on Seaview Drive and parking will be controlled on the main road through Ogmore-by-Sea.

    Police and council staff will also be present this weekend to deal with any issues, and alcohol being carried and consumed may be seized.

    Council leader Neil Moore, said: “We need to ensure that our coastal resorts and tourist destinations remain attractive and are equipped to offer a quality visitor experience, without having a detrimental impact on residents and communities."

    Public toilets have reopened in a south Wales seaside resort, with extra hygiene measures against coronavirus.

    Barry Island is one of the locations where facilities run by the Vale of Glamorgan Council are available again.

    Smaller toilets will see cleaning increase from once to three times a day, while the busiest locations will have cleaning staff on duty all day.

    Neighbouring Cardiff Council said its public toilets would stay closed until Welsh Government guidance changed.

    Public toilets across the UK were shut at the start of the coronavirus lockdown, to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
