    Welsh Covid rules will not be relaxed quicker - minister

    Wales will not lift Covid rules quicker than planned despite case rates being in rapid decline.

    Eluned Morgan said the level of coronavirus remains "really high".

    She also expressed concerns over signs "in other places" that there could be an increase in the number of cases in schools.

    The Welsh government announced a three week roadmap for scrapping restrictions last Friday.

    Last Saturday more people were allowed to attend outdoor events, while from Friday crowds can return to sporting fixtures.

    From 28 January nightclubs can reopen and from 10 February Wales returns to a three-week review cycle.

    Meanwhile the chief medical officer Frank Atherton has suggested UK officials may look at winding down mass testing in the summer.

    The Welsh government is set to resist calls for the Covid law – which dictates how land can be used in Wales – to be relaxed quicker, according to a minister. Theresa May has said that the UK government will work with the Welsh authorities to "support them in their efforts to create more jobs and growth" in the country. A report by think tank Demos earlier this year suggested that the Covid rules were a barrier to business growth in Wales.
