Britons today kicked off ‘the Glorious Twelfth’ in style, with thirsty drinkers already sipping on pints, long queues forming outside shops and punters queuing for a long overdue haircut or trip to the gym. 

Chilly temperatures seem to be doing little to dampen enthusiasm for the easing of lockdown in England, which is seeing beer gardens, shops, hairdressers and gyms join libraries, zoos and nail salons in reopening.

Some eager patrons even rushed to the pubs at midnight as they flocked to the beer gardens the minute restrictions were eased – despite temperatures dipping to -5C. 

A long queue was seen outside The Oak Inn in Coventry which is open until 6am, offering pizzas and kebabs throughout the night to the thirsty revellers.

Meanwhile at the Kentish Belle in Bexley Heath, groups of six flocked to its 12am opening to grab an early pint. 

Others had different priorities and headed straight to the hairdressers to fix their lockdown hair after months of isolation. 

Some beauticians even visited their customers’ homes for much-needed treatments such as spray tans after the clock struck midnight. 

Boris Johnson last night urged Britons to ‘behave responsibly’ as they make the most of the new rules.
