People in England celebrated easing of Covid lockdown restrictions on Monday as pubs, hairdressers, zoos, theme parks, gyms and non-essential retailers threw open their doors for the first time since January 6.
Queues formed outside high street stores, while others wrapped up warm to enjoy a post-midnight pint in newly reopened pub gardens.
From pints to penguins and Primark queues, here is what
another step towards normality looked like across England.
