Police Raid Sends People Fleeing From Beauty Salon Open Despite Lockdown

CCTV footage released by police in Wales shows people fleeing from a beauty salon that was open against lockdown rules in Cwmbran on January 16.

Gwent Police said the owner of Euphoria Tanning Hair and Beauty was fined £1,000 for remaining open during the nationwide lockdown, with three customers also receiving fixed penalty notices.

Under the lockdown imposed by the Welsh government, people may not leave home “without a reasonable excuse”, such as to buy groceries. Most retailers must stay closed, including salons. Credit: Gwent Police via Storyful
