People in the UK (including Abingdon on Thames) returned to doorsteps at 6pm to applaud a 100-year-old veteran who had raised almost £33m for NHS charities by walking laps of his garden. He died yesterday with Covid-19.

Residents of West St Helen Street were led by John, whose drum helped to bring out residents who had not heard of the proposed doorstep applause.

John said that he had intended to do one on Thursday at 8pm but then the Prime Minister announced the national applause for Wednesday at 6pm.
