Hundreds of people got out onto their doorsteps, out of their windows and even lit up to say thank you to our NHS.

The #clapforourcarers campaign aimed to bring people together at 8.00pm last night (Thursday 26th March) to make some noise.

It was all in honour of the frontline NHS workers who have been working so hard in the face of the coronavirus outbreak.

We even paused on Spire FM to show our support:
