FINES were handed out over the weekend as Ceredigion Roads Policing Unit continued to enforce the no-essential travel restrictions across the Dyfed-Powys Police area.

Two people from the Midlands who had come to Ceredigion to walk their dog were found with cannabis, while the driver had no licence or insurance.

Both were fined for non-essential travel and reported for the other offences and the car was seized.

Four people from the Cannock area – and not from the same household – who had travelled to Ceredigion ‘for a spin’ were reported and sent back.

Another driver who was stopped passed a drug test after officers noticed a strong smell of cannabis. However, the car was not insured and was therefore seized.

A driver from London who was making a 400-mile round-trip to see his girlfriend was fined and sent back home.

Two people sunbathing were removed from the beach at Aberporth by Cardigan Neighbourhood Policing team.

Officers are also stepping up speed checks alongside GoSafe Cymru throughout the county in response to community concerns

In Pembrokeshire, seven people were fined after travelling to the county from Wolverhampton and Bristol, while in another incident, three men were arrested after 30 grams of cannabis were seized and the driver provided a positive roadside drugswab. One of the men one has also been charged with possession of an offensive weapon.
