Pubs, bars and restaurants were full, with revellers braving the cold to sit outside and share one final night of freedom. Pubs, bars, and restaurants closed across England on Thursday night under the new lockdown measures announced by Boris Johnson on Saturday, October 31. The new restrictions will last until December 2, though ministers have said there is a chance the lockdown could be extended.
