New coronavirus figures show North Wales still has biggest daily rise in the country
Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board recorded 58 new cases in the last 24 hours

A further seven people have died after testing positive for coronavirus in Wales, bringing the total number to 1,274.

Public Health Wales today recorded 106 new known cases, meaning 13,415 people have tested positive for the disease in Wales, although the actual number is likely to be much higher.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has 58 new cases today, bringing the total number to 2,510 in North Wales.

The health board area recorded the highest number of cases in Wales in the last 24 hours yet again - more than four times higher than Cwm Taf Morgannwg's figure of 14 which was the second highest.

The total number of deaths in North Wales is 233, but the number doesn't include some deaths within the community.

Since the outbreak began, 201 people have now tested positive in Anglesey, 474 in Conwy, 530 in Denbighshire, 428 in Flintshire, 387 in Gwynedd and 490 in Wrexham.

Denbighshire saw the highest jump with 22 new cases overnight.        ref DP

I noticed on the Conwy CBC website that there are footway works to take place between the TIC and Marine Road so the "tow" issue may be related to that proposal which is supposed to finish in mid-June.

Nemesis, I believe that all the pay areas on the Prom are subject to that Tow away message.   That's from the Cayley embankment area to the Skip and beyond it as far as the turning to the A55.
In Llandudno most of the North Promenade is subject to a charge and it covers all the prom up to the Venue Cymru but I've heard that the Craig Y Don prom has also come under discussion as has the West Shore.

Unfortunately since I was ill last July I am unable to walk more than a few yards and my OH is classed as disabled. Thus we haven't been anywhere to walk except 'round the block' ever since the restrictions began, other than for essential journeys like the chemist and to shop for food.
Thus the sight of the tow away area came as a shock , not having been for weeks and the volume of elderly people , like us, on the top of the embankment was amazing.
Can you answer me a question please? Does the tow away area extend as far as the pay area on the prom at Colwyn Bay? There are no such areas in Llandudno where parking is charged for.

I don't know why they have done that but it won't be to deter visitors because the visitors shouldn't be there anyway.     Neither should the locals be there unless they have a valid reason for doing so.     As I understand it, in Wales no one should drive to do their exercise unless they have a health or mobility reason for doing so.
The exercise should start and end at your home and you should stay local
Where I live on the heights, I'm just going around in circles when I go out to exercise because of these restrictions.   I can only come in to Llandudno when I have a valid reason for doing so which is frustrating because I would love to walk on the Great Orme again

As you say Hugo, people were parked at the top of the embankment ,as we did, even so Hassan was doing a brisk trade in takeaway food and drink. He was using polystyrene coffee cups before the lockdown, instead of his usual pottery mugs and yes his coffee is very nice.

Was the reason we were told true? Is this to deter visitors? It has been a popular place for locals, never mind visitors to dog walk, potter along the front and generally enjoy the sea for many years.
