Rhondda Cynon Taf lockdown: What did minister say about Doncaster?


Claims made by the Welsh health minister that a group from a social club in the south Wales valleys took a coach trip to Doncaster races has been clarified by officials.

Vaughan Gething criticised the actions of the group from Abercynon, saying they had behaved “irresponsibly”.

He said the party was linked to a cluster of coronavirus cases in Rhondda Cynon Taf, as he announced fresh lockdown measures across the county on Wednesday.

However, officials have now made it clear the group travelled with the intention of visiting Doncaster races, but did not actually attend the racecourse itself.

So what exactly did the minister say?
