Three women were slapped with lockdown breach fines after being caught dyeing their hair in a car park.

The woman had travelled to Welsh beauty spot, Langland Bay, in Swansea, to carry out the beauty treatments.

It comes as South Wales Police reveal more than 370 people were fined over the course of last weekend.

Amongst other lockdown rule-breakers were three people who had also gathered in Swansea at a flat to receive haircuts

Five men had also travelled hundreds of miles from England to party in the city, while four others were found inside a pub in the Cardiff suburb of Llandaf.

Police also stopped a car with five occupants - all from different households - who were on their way to a party in Brynmill, Swansea.

While ten people who attended protests in Swansea city centre were also reported for summons for breaching Covid regulations.

Chief Superintendent Andy Valentine said: "We know it’s been a very challenging few months for our communities, and we can understand that people will have wanted a change of scenery in order to enjoy the good weather at the weekend.

"But the reality is, coronavirus remains a very real threat to us all, and the whole of Wales continues to be under Level 4 restrictions for a reason.

"The vast majority of us have made real sacrifices to support the national effort; to stop doing so now at such a crucial point risks undoing all we have achieved so far.

"The rollout of the vaccine and the recent publication of plans to ease restrictions provides us all with much needed hope, but I would urge our local communities to continue following the rules that are currently in place.

"We do not want to be enforcing these rules, our preference would of course be for everyone to do the right thing. But we remain unapologetically clear, those who blatantly or repeatedly breach the rules will face enforcement action."

Last weekend's sunny weather saw an increase in many people flocking to the coast or other beauty spots to make the most of the weather.

In Merseyside, hundreds of cars were turned away from Formby Beach.

Police found visitors to have come as far as Stockport, Manchester and even Leeds to get to the beauty spot, the latter of which is around 85 miles away.

Streets around the popular beach were gridlocked with traffic and the car park filled up in the morning, reports the  Liverpool Echo.

Around 20 people were issued with fines of £200 in the form of fixed penalty notices for breaching Covid restrictions.

Officers from  Merseyside Police  slammed those "flagrantly flouting the rules" and said people should be following the guidelines "now more than ever", so that we can meet the criteria for easing lockdown restrictions in the months ahead.
