A CAR stopped by Police in Old Colwyn during the coronavirus lockdown was carrying four young men who had just been to a party.

Despite rules on non-essential travel, the men were seen Saturday night before officers split them up and made sure they left in different directions.

The Cheshire and North Wales Alliance Armed Policing unit wrote on Twitter: "How to attract attention: Driving a car, 4 young males on board returning from a party in Colwyn Bay."

They said the driver was arrested for driving while disqualified and the other occupants were warned about social distancing.

The Roads Policing Unit, which was also involved in the incident, added: "Vehicle carrying four people and driver did not have licence or insurance. Vehicle seized.

"Please remember Social Distancing rules!! Group were split up and we made sure they went in different directions!"
