Coronavirus: 'I'll go to cemetery and sit outside the gates'

"I'll go there and just sit outside the gates," a Cardiff man has said about visiting his wife's grave during lockdown.

Malachy O'Donnell, 73, from Cardiff, lost his wife, Lynette, after a very short illness six years ago.

Cardiff council is one of eight in Wales which closed all cemeteries temporarily during the coronavirus outbreak and he has called on them to rethink.

"You're not going there for enjoyment, you're going there to gain strength, or to remember a loved one," he said.

Cardiff council has since confirmed it will reopen Cathays, Western, Thornhill and Pantmawr cemeteries on Saturday, with staff and police making sure social-distancing is adhered to.
