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.
The general population of people that ventured out today were well behaved and pretty considerate. A well policed operation with @PARCPLYMOUTH in attendance. However, 1 drunken buffoon who lost total control of himself & wanted to fight the world got to spend it in a cell.🙄— PC Jon Hitt (@pc6592) July 4, 2020
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.
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:
