Police have been asking the people to share a single message, rather than the virus.

In a range of updates local policing teams have shared several images of the good, and the bad of the lockdown response.

The above emoji censored image appears to have been taken around Glyn Ceiriog, and was shared by police who said: “Dear cyclists, Mr Johnson is very keen for us to exercise, but the main thing to remember is to KEEP LOCAL.”

They stated that officers had spoken to “numerous cyclists” in the Chirk and Glyn Valley, adding “Many had travelled from all over the North West!” They reminded people, “You are travelling through many isolated areas with a high number of vulnerable people. You are putting these people and their lives at risk. Please stop. Observe the government guidance and save lives.

“It is a nice weekend to STAY AT HOME. Stop being selfish!”

More positively a range of images were also shared alongside a message from local police.

Police said, “Wrexham please can you all share this message, not the virus!

“Its our job to keep you safe but we need your help now more than ever. Stay home, protect your family, support the emergency services & save lives.

Police added, “We need to work together as a community as we are all in this together!”
