Wales' First Minister will today announce the details of new eased lockdown restrictions which allow people to meet with friends and family again.

But Mark Drakeford has warned that the eased restrictions are permission to visit with loved ones outdoors, "not an invitation".

While you can meet with different households on different days and there's no cap to the number of people, it has to remain at just two households meeting up at once.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain ahead of his statement on Friday, he said: "People will be allowed to meet in gardens but I do want to be really clear. This is permission for people to do it, it's not an invitation.

People from different households can meet up outside, but they must keep a social distance

"The safest thing remains to see as few people as you can and to stay as locally as you can.

"So it's permission for people to do something which is very important but people should still be sensible about it, do it only when its necessary, stay apart from one another.

"Running to people's houses, sitting in gardens close together, having a beer and it all breaking down - that's definitely not what we are proposing in Wales."

Mr Drakeford said while the meetings are restricted to take place between two households, there will be no cap put on the number of people that can meet - a measure which differs from the new six-person limit set in England.

He said: “It doesn’t have to be the same household every time. You will be able to see different households, providing you stick to the basic conditions. It must be outside, because this virus is much less dangerous to people in the fresh air and sunlight. The social distancing is really important.

“Those households must stay together, and apart from the other household.”

He told Radio Wales people need to use "common sense" when following the rules and "take some responsibility."

“People shouldn’t do things that risk those strict rules from breaking down. It is a really big step ahead to allow people to meet face to face with one another again, and I know people in Wales will understand that they have got to do that in the most careful and controlled way.”

The First Minister is due to elaborate on the details of the plan at the Welsh Government coronavirus briefing on Friday afternoon.

The measures will come into effect from Monday, June 1.
