Swans and Ospreys back 'Stay at Home' plea

The Swans and Ospreys are backing Swansea Council's plea to people to stay at home over the bank holiday weekend to save lives and protect the NHS


Wales and Ospreys winger George North and Swansea City star Wayne Routledge have both recorded videos to be released this weekend urging people not to travel unnecessarily.

Long-serving player Wayne said: "I know the weather is going to be good this weekend but please stay in. We all need to do it."

Swansea Council is urging people to follow UK government guidance and exercise close to home.

The four council beach car parks at Port Eynon, Bracelet Bay, Langland and Caswell will be closed as will other private car parks on Gower.

Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, said: "I want to thank everyone who has been observing the government guidelines over the past week but I would also like to appeal directly to those who may be tempted not to.

"This is a critical point in the fight to contain coronavirus which is claiming the lives of so many.

"By ignoring the rules not only are you putting yourselves, family and friends in danger but you are also risking piling further pressure on the NHS.

"Rules on accessing green space and beaches for exercise is very clear - stay local and use open spaces near to your home where possible - do not travel unnecessarily."
