A nightclub has prompted people to brand Leeds "the best city in this country" as it announced it would open its doors for the first time since Covid-19 broke out on June 21.

Mint Warehouse announced their Grand Reopening event for 21 June at 12.01 - the day Prime Minister Boris Johnson suggested nightclubs could reopen as he set out his roadmap to lifting restrictions.

They said there is "no point messing about" as they promoted their first event in a year, which will take place at the System nightclub, the Daily Star reports.

A Facebook post reads: "No point messing about were opening Sunday midnight! System - The Grand Reopening - Round 2Monday 21st June - 00:01 am start Mint Warehouse Fingers crossed."

Several people have applauded the venue for launching the event, with one writing that it is "another reason why Leeds is the best city" in the UK.

Brits have been overjoyed at the news as many haven’t set foot in a nightclub since the pandemic hit in March 2020.

People are so excited that a petition to make June 21 a national bank holiday has amassed over 38,000 signatures.

The petition states: "We'd like the government to create a one off Bank Holiday, to be known as Merriweather Day, on Monday June 21st 2021 as an opportunity for families and friends to come together."

"Covid-19 has negatively impacted people and families up and down the length of the country in many different ways not least their ability to come together.

"We've seen family celebrations at Eid, amongst others, cancelled and it looks likely Christmas will be the same.

"This proposed bank holiday would help families and friends of all faiths and none to come together to celebrate.

"We've chosen the longest day of the year as it provides for the most opportunities to be outdoors in a Covid-19 safe way."
