Coronavirus lockdown, Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire
The nation was put into lockdown on 23 March 2020 in an unprecedented step to attempt to limit the spread of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). People were required to leave their homes only for going to work, essential shopping, medical appointments and daily exercise. Many businesses were ordered to be closed to maintain physical distancing.

En route to undertake food shopping, I took a number of images, mid-morning, to illustrate the greatly reduced pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the city centre.

Hepworth's Arcade, a 19th century shopping arcade, remains gated at all entrances.
