Neath Port Talbot Council has teamed up with South Wales Police to survey hotspots where people are not following government measures on social distancing.

The drones are equipped with speakers that will transmit messages directly to the public.

We are reminding residents to stay at home except for: shopping for necessities, obtaining medical supplies, one period of daily exercise, and travelling to and from essential work.
