THE familiar sound of claps, pots clinking together and cruise ship horns were heard across the city last night.

But it marked the tenth official Clap for Carers that has brought the community together for the last ten Thursday evenings when the clock has struck eight.

Daily Echo:

Thousands of people have paid gratitude to NHS staff, carers and frontline workers tackling the coronavirus pandemic.
