The lifting of lockdown restrictions allowed businesses across the town centre to re-open this morning - and shoppers returned in good numbers.

There were queues outside some shops as staff managed numbers inside to comply with physical distancing requirements.

Cafes were able to serve people indoors for the first time in several months, and charity shops accepted donations once again.
