Police have said that "Montgomeryshire did us proud" on Saturday as lockdown was eased in England.

Newtown officers took to Twitter to thank people for adhering to the Welsh coronavirus rules.

A number of businesses were able to reopen across the border on what has been dubbed 'Super Saturday'. These included pubs, bars and hairdressers - albeit with social distancing measures in place.

However, this is not the case yet in Wales - and people have been urged not to cross the border to access the services.

Newtown Police said: "Time to reflect on last night and it's fair to say that Montgomeryshire did us proud, thank you to everyone that adhered to covid regulations, very few issues reported with us and our cross border partners.

"Great team effort with the Shropshire and Staffordshire British Transport Police and Transport for Wales Rail."

On Monday, July 6, the 'stay local' rule will end in Wales. This means that people can go beyond five miles from home and that there will be no limits on travel. Outdoor attractions will also be able to open.

Two households will be able to stay together indoors from Monday too; as the number of coronavirus cases continues to fall.
