With glorious weather, an Eat Out to Help Out incentive, and endless days spent on the beach, last summer may have felt as if the worst of the coronavirus pandemic was over.

As the nation waited with bated breath for news of an impending vaccine, many people made the most of the long summer days.
There were also opportunities to grab a haircut, catch up with loved ones while adhering to the rule of six, and stock up on a variety of colourful and creative face masks.
Here are some more photos from the lockdown during last summer.
