Police are turning away visitors to the Brecon Beacons from as far away as London.

Wales is on alert level four so people must not travel into or out of the country and can only leave home for essential reasons.

On Monday and Tuesday, cars filled a car park below Pen y Fan, the highest mountain in southern Britain.

Dyfed-Powys Police said more than 500 vehicles were in the area on Tuesday, including a minibus from Cheltenham.

The force said people from mixed households travelled in the minibus, while they had also spoken to a man who had travelled from Hertfordshire.

"Fixed penalty notices have and will be issued to those blatant breaches where engagement fails," it added.

Meanwhile, an intensive care consultant said the scenes were "very disappointing" as hospitals were under pressure.

Dr David Hepburn said he understands why people want to visit beauty spots but it was against the rules.

He said it was still unclear what impact Christmas had had on case numbers.

"All the hospitals across the health board are now very, very full," said Dr Hepburn, who works as a consultant in the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport.

He said while his intensive care unit was coping, he added: "We've still got quite a lot of time to go before this pandemic is under control, so really anything could happen over the next month or so."

Police roadblocks were in place on Tuesday in the Brecon Beacons, with cars lining the A470 to gain access to the area.

Visitors to the national park on Tuesday also included people from London, currently under tier-four restrictions, as well as numerous visitors from Swansea, Cardiff and Newport.
