I live by the Thames @Sarasa and the boats were sounding their horns just like they do on new years eve, everyone was out clapping and the cars were hooting. I got a bit emotional too.No bagpipes in south west London but we did have a firework. We were on our evening walk by the Thames when it was 8.o'clock. There were people on the balconies of the flats we were passing out and clapping and the boats on the river were sounding their horns. I'm a tough old thing not normally moved by such things, but I was tonight.
We had a trumpet at full blast.Bagpipers across Scotland and beyond are tuning up in preparation for a unique mass tribute to all the workers and ordinary people helping to keep society safe and functioning during the coronavirus crisis.www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com
