The Welsh Government have said that rumours being spread about a possible curfew in Wales are “completely false”.

A social media account called Bubble Wales had claimed that there were rumours that the Welsh Government were considering a Wales-wide curfew between 9pm and 6am.

“Rumours – at this stage *just* rumours – that the Welsh Government are considering a curfew, under which people in Wales would not be able to leave their residences between 9pm and 6am,” the account said.

However, the Welsh Government rejected the suggestion, in a message shared by First Minister Mark Drakeford.

“We are aware of rumours being spread about plans for a ‘curfew’ in Wales,” they said. “These are completely false.”

The conservative-leaning Bubble Wales account published news and gossip from inside the Welsh Parliament.

They previously broke the news of a leaked letter revealing the details of Wales’ firebreak lockdown.
