Today was the day when non-essential shops and outdoor restaurants
could reopen in England. I decided to take an
electric bus along two of the main shopping streets in London to see
if there were returning crowds of shoppers.

Bottom line: not really, as the absence of foreign tourists is very
obvious. But some shops did have queues outside at
10am.


It took the weekend for my high street to be busy again after the first
lockdown

Not many people are going to take a day off work to go shopping 5 days
earlier, after a wait for 4 months




Some parts of the country are still in school holidays, Southampton
yesterday was full of people shopping and queuing for pubs.
