Warm temperatures see many flock to Barry Island and to shops

AS temperatures soared this weekend many flocked to beaches, town centres and various other beauty spots as restrictions on outdoor gatherings are eased in Wales.

The latest easing of coronavirus restrictions sees six people from six households allowed to gather outside from Saturday.

The total does not include children under 11 or carers from those households.

The weekend has been fine and sunny, with a high of 18C on Saturday, the Met Office said.
