Pub patrons in South Tyneside took advantage of being able to sit in doors once again as restrictions were eased on May 17.

With the Government’s roadmap to normality currently going as planned, people can now again meet in limited numbers indoors.

This includes pubs and restaurants.

And, though caution is still advised, people can also hug others from outside their households.
