A DRIVER who had travelled from Coventry yesterday (Thursday, May 21) to buy a Slush Puppie machine has been fined and sent back home after being stopped by officers from Ceredigion Roads Policing Unit.

A group of men who had travelled from Stratford on Avon were also stopped, issued with fines and turned back as Dyfed-Powys police continue to enforce lockdown restrictions ahead of the bank holiday weekend.

Across Wales, all non-essential travel must still be avoided. Staying away from the place you live, without a reasonable excuse, remains an offence.

Speed checks across the county are continuing, with one driver yesterday clocked at 58mph in a 30mph zone.
