People living in England are breaching lockdown restrictions by travelling across the border into Powys to take part in game shooting, the council has said.

Powys County Council has issued a reminder to shooting businesses of their responsibilities after being made aware of recent breaches.

Travel is not allowed between Wales and England without a reasonable excuse, such as for work purposes when it is not possible to work from home.

Latest rules state that organised outdoor activities, including recreational shooting, can take place in Wales providing all shooting participants live in Wales and no more than 30 people take part.

Cllr Graham Breeze, Cabinet Member for Regulatory Services at Powys County Council, said: "Only people living in Wales can take part in these sorts of activities at the moment, so it is really disappointing to hear of recent breaches at some of the county's game shoots.

"To help protect people's health, no one from England should be entering Wales and vice versa, without a good reason and travelling from England to attend a shoot is not a justifiable excuse.

"We are monitoring the situation closely with Dyfed-Powys Police and will use our enforcement powers if issues like this persist.

"I know times are tough and we all long for normality, but the virus is still circulating so please keep following the guidance and help us to keep Powys safe."
