What Cardiff looked like on the last Friday night before lockdown

It was far from a typical Friday night out

The late-night-drinkers and revellers in Wales' capital city have already faced one evening of national measures aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus.

But Friday night was the last before Cardiff goes into a local lockdown and the last opportunity for many people to let their hair down after a working week.

While people have been slowly returning to a new "normal" as the country emerges from the first lockdown, Cardiffians once again face the prospect of tighter restrictions in a bid to stem rising coronavirus cases.

Cardiff will go into lockdown from 6pm on Sunday along with Swansea and 24 hours after Llanelli, which goes into lockdown on Saturday evening.

And this is what the city's streets looked like. It was far from a typical Friday night out. You can see a photo study of Wales through the last six months of lockdown here.
