Four ‘ghost hunters’ caught breaching coronavirus rules also have car seized

A group of people who travelled to Swansea for a "ghost hunt" have been fined for breaching Wales' Level 4 coronavirus lockdown.

Four individuals were stopped in a car in Mumbles in the early hours of Friday, March 5, by South Wales Police.

The force found they had travelled more than 50 miles from Cwnbran to Swansea.

Upon further investigation, officers came across incriminating social media posts that told them the offenders had ignored level 4 Covid restrictions, which have been in place in Wales since 20 December.

The posts revealed the group had actually come to the city for a ghost hunt and to "view castles," Wales Online reported.

South Wales Police announced on Twitter that the group were slapped with fixed penalty fines for the Covid breach.

The driver of the car was in further trouble, the force said, as he had been driving with no insurance and only a provisional license.

Officers also seized the driver's car and joked the group had a "long walk" back home to Cwnbran.
