People across our region last night gathered at their windows, doorsteps or balconies to 'Clap For Our Carers' and thank those at the front of the fight against coronavirus.
Some people banged on pots and pans for extra oomph.
Members of other blue light services also joined in the nationwide appreciation.
Thanks to our fantastic @NHSuk!— Mike Allen 👨🔬🏴🇬🇧🇪🇺🌍💫 (@Mike_J_Allen) March 26, 2020
Awesome sounds across #Broadsands #Paignton #Devon tonight. Clapping, bell ringing, whistling and fireworks. And a few dogs barking too. #clapforNHS #clapforourcarers #ClapForCarers pic.twitter.com/T9mTEljK4j
