The Government announced last week that the whole country would be subject to tough four-week restrictions from Thursday, November 5 to December 2.

This means people should avoid leaving their homes unless it is necessary and not mix with people in other households, except in specific circumstances.

‘Non-essential’ shops have been told to close, but many are still offering delivery or online click and collect options.

Here are 12 photos from the first day of the second lockdown.
