“I have not seen the comments of the Welsh Government,” she said.

“I will speak to Mark Drakeford this afternoon and that may be something he expands upon there.”

It comes after the Prime Minister declined to impose travel restrictions on people in English lockdown areas.

People in locked down parts of Wales are unable to leave except for a limited set of reasons.

Wales’ health minister said the government is to consider the matter today.
