London clubbers celebrate first night of freedom as Covid restrictions are lifted

They said they reduced the number of bands and the number of venues and lost money on the event because fewer people than expected attended.

British society appears split on the restrictions: some want tough rules to continue as they fear the virus will keep killing people, but others have chafed at the most onerous restrictions in peacetime history.

Business owners – including nightclubs, travel companies and the hospitality industry – have been desperate to reopen the economy while many students, young people and parents have quietly disregarded many of the most onerous rules.
