Temperatures across the UK soared on Saturday but while people in Wales appeared to be staying at home and soaking up the sun from their gardens and doorsteps it appeared to be a different picture elsewhere.

In England, beaches were packed, car parks full and in Dorset, three people were taken by air ambulance to hospital after being injured jumping off cliffs.

The rules on what you can and can't do in Wales, England and Scotland during lockdown are different.

In Wales, people are only allowed to go outside for limited reasons including to exercise in their local area, for shopping and medicine, or to visit a garden centre, tip or recycling centre.

But in England people are allowed to travel, with no limit on the distance, and can meet outside with a person from a different household.

In Scotland people from two households can meet outside but the maximum number should not exceed eight people.

The rules for Wales and England are set to change again on Monday.

On Saturday, beaches in Wales like Whitmore Bay at Barry Island appeared quiet for a sunny Saturday in May.

Whereas Durdle Door in Dorset had reams of visitors who had to be evacuated after the air ambulance landed on the beach.

Images posted on social media by Purbeck Police in Dorset show the aircraft landing on the sand and crowds leaving the beach en masse as the area was evacuated.

HM Coastguard and the RNLI are helping to clear the area after police were called at around 3.45pm.

Chief Inspector Claire Phillips, of Dorset Police, said: "We have had to close the beach at Durdle Door to allow air ambulances to land. As a result, we are evacuating the beach and the surrounding cliff area.

"I am urging people to leave the area to enable emergency services to treat the injured people."

The scene was similar around England's beaches in terms of crowds as seaside destinations like Southend-on-Sea were packed with sunbathers.

Car parks in England were seen teeming with vehicles, while the car park at Llansteffan beach was closed. At Barry Island, the roads leading to car parks were closed and police officers patrolled the area.

Cardiff's Roath Park was also a spot that seemed a lot quieter than usual for this time of year.

Some people could be seen doing their daily exercise, but the grounds were a lot emptier than usual.

But in parts of England pictures capture a rather different story such as London's Greenwich Park.

In Cardiff Bay, it was slightly busier but by no means what it would be like on your normal weekend in such lovely weather.

A few people could be seen walking and having a ride on their bikes but, apart from that, the area remained pretty calm.

In England, people flocked to beaches and train stations to enjoy the sunny weather ahead of lockdown restrictions being eased there on Monday.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that people will be able to spend time outdoors, including in private gardens, with up to six people from different households from Monday. They will also be able to visit car showrooms and outdoor markets. On Saturday it was announced that people in England will also be able to exercise in groups of up to six people from different households.

But the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) complained that "mixed messages" from the UK Government had caused travel chaos.

Bournemouth train station, near Bournemouth Beach, was described by RMT union leaders as "the eye of the storm".

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: "The hopeless mixed messaging from the Government and the impact of the (Dominic) Cummings affair has resulted in predictable chaos on the railway today, with Bournemouth at the eye of the storm.

"This is on Boris Johnson and he cannot shirk responsibility.

"RMT has warned that lifting the lockdown too quickly would soon result in chaos on our transport services, and here you have it.

"This union will take whatever action is required to protect the health, safety and livelihoods of our members."

In Wales, lockdown measures will also start to ease from Monday, although with a "cautious" approach.

On Friday, First Minister Mark Drakeford announced that people from two households will be allowed to meet one another outside - while adhering to social distancing - from Monday.

But he said that as a general rule of thumb people should only travel five miles away from their homes to stop the virus from spreading across different communities.

Mr Drakeford confirmed that people can leave the house to sunbathe in parks and use the beach as long as it is local and not outside the five-mile radius.

Referring to the five-mile rule earlier this week, Mr Drakeford said: "What I'm asking people to do is to use that judgement seriously and soberly.

"The further you travel, the greater the risk that is posed to yourself and others of coronavirus ending up in parts of Wales where we've succeeded in keeping it to a minimum.

"Nobody I think wants to do that. If you can manage within a five-mile radius for food and medicines and essential things that's what you should do.

"If your bit of Wales means you've got to go further, use your judgement."

He added: " Coronavirus has not gone away - it remains a silent spreader. You can be infectious without ever knowing that you are ill."

In Scotland people can now meet their friends and family outside but must do so in groups of no more than eight.
