Revellers in cities under Tier 2 restrictions hit bars and the streets last night as new coronavirus measures came into force.
Drinkers were seen in London, Leeds and Manchester, mainly meeting in the street despite the cold weather.
Being under Tier 2 restrictions means residents are not allowed to mix with people from different households in indoor settings.
Meeting outdoors, such as in gardens or in the street, is allowed provided that people follow the rule of six – meaning there cannot be more than six people together at one time, with some exceptions.
Some people in central London braved the cold to have a drink or a walk outside after the capital was placed into the high Covid alert level due to a spike in coronavirus cases.
