15 pictures from Alnwick show eerily quiet streets as new lockdown begins

Alnwick resembled a ghost town as new lockdown restrictions came into force.

Pedestrians were few and far between in the town centre where non-essential shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants have been forced to close.

A smattering of essential shops remain open – with some attracting a steady trickle of customers – but the streets were eerily quiet.

It was all in stark contrast to the night before lockdown when a hugely successful late night shopping event was held and the town’s pubs and bars were busy.

Take a look around the town with these 15 pictures.
