London: People across England have had their first night out in three months, after coronavirus restrictions eased.
Hospitality venues such as pubs and restaurants as well as hairdressers, cinemas and theme parks reopened with strict social distancing rules.
Nottinghamshire Police arrested four people after reports of antisocial behaviour at “a small number of pubs north of the county”. As a result, five venues chose to “close their own premises”.
Earlier in the day long queues were also seen outside hair salons in particular, with many apparently keen to leave their lockdown haircuts behind. Weddings have also recommenced now that guidance permits socially distant ceremonies of up to 30 people.
People were also encouraged to place lights in their window on Saturday to remember those who have died from the virus.
Restrictions on the hospitality sector remain in place in Scotland and Wales, while pubs have been able to open in Northern Ireland since Friday.
