The Clap For Our Carers campaign began last week and encouraged people across the UK to applaud the health service and its staff.

The clap was repeated last night to give continuing thanks not just to the NHS but all key workers that are working tirelessly during the coronavirus pandemic.

Once again tens of thousands of people across the country clapped from their doorsteps, balconies or windows.
