THOUSANDS of Londoners flock to pubs for ‘last hurrah’ hours before national lockdown

Images of packed out Soho streets emerged on Twitter with some users welcoming the idea of a last night out before the strict restrictions come into force. One Twitter user said: “Last night before the last lockdown, London was near silent.

“Tonight it was marvellously vibrant and upbeat… opinion is changing, and hopefully this the last time we will be here.

“Young, liberal, moderate people are perfectly capable of spending safely – and we need just that?!”

The rules set out by Boris Johnson last Saturday became effective from 12.01am today.

They will last until December 2 although ministers have warned an extension could not be ruled out.
