Boarded-up McDonald’s and empty buses: Norwich during coronavirus lockdown

As the nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus approaches the two-week mark, Norwich remains still.
Businesses across the city centre have closed for the foreseeable future from boutique shops in the lanes to the boarded-up McDonald’s on Hay Hill.
Buses, however, continue to drive through Castle Meadow, although they are largely empty, except from the occasional key worker.
Shoppers snake round the city streets for supermarkets, such as Tesco Metro on Guildhall Hill, where pavements are marked with tape two metres apart to help maintain social distancing.
Police officers can be seen patrolling and ready to enforce measures such as fines for those who flout government guidelines to curb the spread of the pandemic.
