Huge queue of shoppers have been seen on high streets across England today, as non-essential shops reopened their doors to customers
Department and high street stores were allowed to reopen for the first time in almost three months, with social distancing measures in place. Shoppers were seen queuing to enter retailers across the country, including tightly-packed crowds outside the Nike Town store on Oxford Street in London, and thousands waiting outside Primark branches in various cities. Here’s how shops looked across the UK on the day of reopening.
