In line with Government guidance, Ledbury Town Council will close the outdoor fitness equipment and skate park at the Bye Street Recreation Ground during the lockdown.

But the playgrounds will stay open.

Clerk, Angie Price said: "The Government, when providing guidance, has recognised the importance of the need for playgrounds to remain open. Playgrounds are a valuable community asset that provide children with a stimulating and tactile experience to exercise and learn through play."

She added: "These are temporary measures, following Government guidance regarding the lockdown."
