Bank Holiday revellers hit town on wild night out despite miserable weather

Brits celebrated the late August Bank Holiday by descending on bars and pubs in cities and towns across the country.

Revellers spilt out into the streets of Leeds and Sheffield despite nightclubs being closed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Even the chilly and miserable weather couldn’t keep them away with groups lads and lasses celebrating throughout the night.

Two women were spotted sporting face masks while dressed to the nines, although they were noticeably in the minority who donned them.

Revellers were also seen drinking in the street with many having had one – or two – drinks too many with several hitting the bottle until they vomited in the streets.

One woman was even wheeled into the back of an ambulance as she was unable to make it home by herself.

Fortunately, her friends took care of her before the paramedics arrived to assist.

Manchester revellers were out in force and some, unfortunately, were seen flouting social-distancing guidelines when they hugged as they boozed across the city.

A bloke in Newcastle was seen sporting a mask on his forehead as he smiled for a snap with friends.

Numerous police forces, including the Metropolitan Police, urged people not to join unlicensed events that could put some people at risk.

The Met Police tweeted: "Unlicensed music events are illegal, dangerous and often linked to anti-social behaviour and violence.

"People who attended unlicensed music events are putting themselves, their families and their communities at risk.

"Please think about others and stay at home."

Large fines have been introduced ahead of the Bank Holiday that will target the most serious breaches of social distancing restrictions.

Fines of £100 can also be issued to those who take part in the illegal gatherings.
