A group of four people who travelled to Snowdonia to take promotional photos of a shoe brand have been reported for breaching Covid regulations.

Police were called at 11am yesterday by a national park warden after barriers were moved at the Dol Idris car park on the A487 at Tal y Llyn to gain access.

The vehicle was reported to have been there since 8.30am with poor weather conditions in the area and low visibility.

On arrival, officers from Dolgellau encountered four people returning down from the mountain, who had come from Salisbury, Manchester, Wokingham & Dudley.

They said they had come to the area to get photo content of a brand of shoes, as they specifically wanted shots at Llyn Cau.

Police said: “This was not deemed essential, they put themselves at great risk. All four have been reported.

“We remind the public of the restrictions which are still in place.”

A number of public footpaths and car parks have been closed in Wales with the country currently under alert level 4 restrictions.

The measures are designed to support the stay-at-home regulations, which state that people must not travel unless absolutely necessary
