People have been enjoying their first proper night out in Cardiff since March, after the reopening of pubs indoors in Wales.

Photographs of Cardiff city centre show the Welsh capital on the first Friday night out since lockdown began.

The pictures show the city was busy as people enjoyed outdoor seating on St Mary Street and High Street as well as the outdoor dining area on Castle Street.

John Street also seems to have been packed with people enjoying the warm evening.

South Wales Police said the vast majority of people had behaved responsibly but two people were arrested in Cardiff Bay. The force also used dispersal and confiscation powers after 130 people arrived at the Oval Basin “with alcohol, Nitrous Oxide cannisters and a large music system – some of whom had previously been subject to police warnings in recent weeks”.

Detective Chief Inspector Lloyd Williams said: “Our policing approach will continue throughout the weekend so our message to those intending to visit is clear – please visit, abide by restrictions and enjoy. Anyone intent on acting in an antisocial or criminal manner will be dealt with robustly.”

Chief Constable Matt Jukes also tweeted, saying: “Plenty of engagement has helped maintain positive atmosphere & disperse smaller groups in Cardiff Bay.

“Relatively few direct interventions required re anti-social behaviour and public order, and many supportive members of public appreciating what @swpolice TST & Cardiff After Dark teams aiming to do.”

The force also tweeted a picture as the sun went down, saying: “Every evening, as the sun goes down over our glorious capital city, our officers are out there #KeepingCardiffSafe.”

These pictures are all from Chris Fairweather at the Huw Evans photographic agency.
