The five-mile restriction on travel in Wales will be lifted from Monday, First Minister Mark Drakeford has announced.

He said: “The number of coronavirus cases is declining, thanks to the efforts we have all taken together to reduce the spread of the virus.

“This means we can continue to make changes to the coronavirus regulations.

“From Monday, we will lift the requirement to stay local and introduce new changes to the rules to enable people from two separate households to join together to form one extended household.

“These changes will be welcomed by many as they represent a further easing of the lockdown – but this doesn’t mean that coronavirus has gone away.

“We all still have a responsibility to keep on doing all the things, which make a real difference to the spread of the virus.

“This means maintaining social distancing, thinking carefully about where we go and why, so together we continue to do all that we can to help to keep Wales safe.”
