Large gathering of youths take over car park in Nantgarw


A car meet up has taken over a retail estate car park in south Wales.

The large gathering of people were photographed outside Showcase Cinemas in Nantgarw, Rhondda Cynon Taf, on Sunday evening.

Pictures from the scene showed a number of cars bunched together with crowds standing alongside the vehicles.

The car park also serves a McDonald’s, Nando’s, Frankie & Benny’s and a bowling alley, but has been largely empty in recent months due to lockdown restrictions.

Witnesses at the scene said South Wales Police arrived at the scene on Sunday, prompting some to leave the area.

The incident is the latest of many lockdown-flouting gatherings that have taken place in the south Wales area in recent weeks.

On Good Friday, April 2, hundreds gathered on the steps of the Senedd in Cardiff Bay with pictures showing minimal social distancing and people dancing and singing.

The crowds were pictured drinking, partying and singing well into the night.

That incident prompted authorities to put a section 35 dispersal order in place, which gives police officers the power to exclude people from the area.

On Sunday, March 28, Gwent Police shut down a car rally in the car park beneath Tesco Extra at Spytty Retail Park in Newport.

The gathering, which was caught on video, appears to show a large number of people standing next to each other without any social distancing.

Gwent Police warned that cars will be seized if the problem persists.
