  2. In Pictures: Wales claps key workers

    Nurses in scrubs stepped out of hospitals to applaud their fellow workers during the fight against coronavirus.

    Medical staff at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, took part in the clap for carers tonight.

    In what could be the final evening of what has become a weekly event, people across Wales took to their doorsteps to thank key workers.

  4. Street's marathon effort for NHS while 'longing to see family'

    For most of us, lockdown has been a marathon not a sprint and nowhere more so than in one street just outside Prestatyn.

    Residents in Bryn Llys in Meliden each ran part of the 26.2 miles up and down the street maintaining social distance, to raise cash for the local hospital and care homes.

    But the woman who helped organise the event said she was desperate to be reunited with loved ones who live elsewhere.

    Elin Hughes-Jones said: "The most important thing for me is to see my family.

    "I can wait a bit longer to see friends, but family is the main thing for me."

    Tomorrow, the Welsh Government is likely to announce an easing of some lockdown restrictions, including being able to meet people from other households, while maintaining social distancing, BBC Wales understands.

    At Lyon's Lido Beach caravan park, staff are preparing for the eventual reopening but say different advice for England and Wales has complicated things.

    Managing director Geoff Lyons-Mount said: "England have gone easier on the opening of things whereas our minister has decided to keep things pretty much tied up, so it's frustrating for us but it's what's good for the area, we've got to look after our residents and the locals."

  5. 'Key workers who are keeping our society together'

    Thanks were given to "the key workers who are keeping our society together," by Wales Air Ambulance.

    "You know who you are, and we salute you," the charity said.

    Tonight could be the last time we all take to our doorsteps, balconies and drives en mass, after the event's founder suggested the 10th time could be a good time to end the weekly celebration.
