Sheffield is now officially in the ‘very high’ level of coronavirus lockdown restrictions after being placed in Tier 3 of the government’s three tier Covid-19 scheme.

Tough new restrictions on daily life came into force across South Yorkshire on Saturday, with different households now banned from mixing in all indoor settings, including private gardens and outdoor hospitality venues, such as cafes and restaurants.

Under new rules pubs and bars have also been forced to close if they do not serve ‘substantial meals’.

However, people can continue to see friends and family they do not live with, or have formed a support bubble with, in certain outdoor public spaces, including parks, beaches, the countryside and forests.

Our photographer headed out to Sheffield city centre to capture the scene on Saturday morning as the Tier 3 restrictions kicked in.
