Firefighters' stunning clap for our carers tribute

EIGHT weeks after the Clap For Our Carers tribute to NHS, social care and other key workers started, Herefordshire is still pausing at 8pm every Thursday to join in. Communities in Herefordshire still gather at the same time every week to join in the weekly initiative. In Kington, firefighters at the town's fire station were filmed joining in, and even created a rainbow to shine over them.

In Bromyard, mayor coun Roger Page and mayoress coun Roger Page stood on Old Road in the town to show their appreciate. Waving a union flag, coun Page was joined by residents of the street, including some banging saucepans.

It's the same picture across much of the UK, with everyone from politicians to NHS staff and town councillors to recovery truck drivers joining in. New parents Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds led the clap for carers and keyworkers this week.

The nation took to the doorstep for the eighth week in a row to clap for NHS carers and key workers who have put their lives at risk fighting Covid-19. The Prime Minister and his fiancee were seen together for the first time since the birth of their son, Wilfred, at the end of April. Both have shared their gratitude to NHS staff after Mr Johnson also spent three nights in intensive care with coronavirus.

Their son has been given the middle name Nicholas in tribute to two of the doctors who saved his life.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer tweeted: "Another emotional moment as the country comes together to clap for our key workers, our carers and all those keeping our country going through this crisis."
