Two drove 100 miles to Wales to walk their dog in ‘uninsured’ car allegedly with cannabis inside


Two people who flouted lockdown rules to make a 100-mile trip to Wales to walk their dog were also allegedly caught with cannabis by police.

Officers from Dyfed-Powys Police were called to reports of a vehicle at Borth beach belonging to people from outside the area.

The vehicle had travelled around 100 miles from the Midlands to get to the Welsh beauty spot, and the people in the car told officers they had come to walk their dog for the day.

Police later found the driver allegedly had no licence and no insurance, and while seizing the vehicle, officers found cannabis too.

The local policing team in Aberystwyth, tweeted: “Patrols at Borth and Ynyslas. Vehicle located – reported for travelling from Midlands area to walk dog.

“With assistance from @CeredigionRPU 376, reported for no insurance and no licence.

“Car seized and cannabis found.”

The Ceredigion RPU police account added: “Reported for Covid-19 breach and all the rest.

“Vehicle seized and train station directions.”

It comes after police also stopped people in the Barmouth area on Saturday who were breaking lockdown regulations – including day-trippers visiting the beach from England.

Police are controlling to patrol across the region and have pledged to send anyone travelling into Wales home.

North Wales Police issued a warning ahead of the weekend that travel restrictions lifted in England, did not apply in Wales.
