25th March 2020

The Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Eleri Thomas, has reinforced calls for everyone in Gwent to stay at home wherever possible: “It is essential that everyone listens to the clear government guidance to help tackle this virus.

“All of our public services need your support and the easiest way of doing this is to simply stay at home.

“It is essential that people who need help can get it. And, to do that, all public services need to be able to respond as efficiently and effective as possible.

“Collectively, we all need to pull together to protect the most vulnerable in society by doing everything we can to slow the spread of Co-Vid 19.

“Help us achieve this by only calling 101 and 999 if you need to and please do not call Gwent Police for guidance on what the new government guidelines mean to you. Full guidance is available at the website and this is the place for the most up-to-date information on the virus.

“The message is simple. Stay home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.”
