People of Plymouth generally "well behaved" as they return to pubs for first time in months

    Venues reopened yesterday on what was described as 'Super Saturday'

    The people of Plymouth gathered at pubs last night for the first time in months.

    There were concerns about social distancing, but one police officer says the general population of people were well behaved.

    PC Jon Hitt tweeted to say that last night was a well policed operation, and one individual was locked up in a cell after losing control.

    Lockdown restrictions eased even further yesterday (4 July) on what was being dubbed as 'Super Saturday'.

    Pubs, restaurants, hairdressers and cinemas were given the green light to reopen after temporarily closing in March.

    Long queues were also reported on stretches on the M5 as tourists travelled to our region.

    But even though local police say that people here were generally well behaved, Devon & Cornwall Police say their logs topped 1000 last night - most linked to drink related disorder and anti-social behaviour.

    Radio Plymouth took to the Barbican last night to find out why people decided to head out:
