HAY BLUFF and the Skirrid are two of the popular beauty spot that have been closed due to the ongoing restrictions amid the coronavirus.

The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority have made the closures to restrict the gathering of people in line with the government's guidelines.

The closures also include the Pen y Fan (Storey Arms Car Park) and Offas Dyke National Trail.

Brecon Beacons National Park Authority Chief Executive, Julian Atkins, said: “The movement restrictions now in force are necessary to prevent the spread of coronavirus and it is essential that the public listens and acts immediately to the instructions which have been issued.

"While we all enjoy getting out into the countryside, locations which attract people to gather or come into contact with each other now pose a risk to our health and it is important that we take the steps necessary to protect lives.

"We have not taken this decision lightly but these closures are important if we are to play our part in slowing the spread of the virus and they must be respected.

"The National Park will still be here when restrictions are lifted but for now we must put these closures in place. Many elderly people live in our National Park and access to hospitals and NHS services can be more difficult for some, please help everyone stay safe.”
