A FAMILY drove all the way from Sussex to west Wales in the first hours of the Welsh firebreak lockdown.

During the early hours of Saturday, police pulled the car-load up on the A40 at Whitland.

Officers said: "Despite being aware of the national lockdown, they travelled over five hours for a non-essential reason. The occupants were suitably advised and escorted out of county."

People are asked to keep police phone lines clear for emergency calls.

They stated: "For information on travel restrictions, go to gov.wales/coronavirus - our control room staff cannot answer these questions for you.

"If you need to report a breach of the regulations, please use our online form via bit.ly/DPPCovid19.
