Drinkers have been out marking England’s last night out before the Government’s latest anti-coronavirus measures come into force.
From Thursday, all pubs, bars and restaurants must shut by 10pm – meaning time at the bar will be somewhere around 9pm.
In pictures from across the country, wet and windy weather is seen marring the enjoyment.
Customers were photographed huddled under umbrellas while they enjoyed their favourite tipple.
From Thursday, along with the 10pm closing times, all hospitality venues must be table service only to try to help contain the spread of Covid-19.
Laws increasing the fines for failing to wear a face covering, which come into force on Thursday, have been published.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Wearing of Face Coverings in a Relevant Place and on Public Transport) (England) (Amendment) (No. 3) Regulations 2020 also widens the scope on where people are required to wear them.
It said the existing laws are amended to include theatres, restaurants, bars and pubs in the list of places where members of the public must wear face coverings, or face a fine of £200 for the first offence, rising to £6,400 for repeat offences.
The exemption is when they need to remove it to eat or drink.
It also requires staff and anyone else providing a service in shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs to wear face coverings when they are in close proximity to members of the public unless they are exempt or have a reasonable excuse.
From Thursday pubs, bars and restaurants must offer table service only and hospitality, leisure, entertainment and tourism businesses will all have to close between 10pm and 5am.
People working in retail, travelling in taxis, and staff and customers in indoor hospitality, except while seated at a table to eat or drink, will have to wear face coverings.
From Monday, a maximum of 15 people will be allowed to attend wedding ceremonies and receptions, but the limit remains at 30 for funerals.
The rule of six, introduced last weekend, that any social gatherings of more than six people are against the law, is being extended to all adult indoor team sports.
Large sporting events, business conferences and exhibitions will not reopen as had been planned from October 1.
The penalties for disobeying the rules will also be greater – failing to wear a mask or breaking the rule of six will see fines doubling to £200 for a first offence.
Businesses which break the rules could be fined up to £10,000 and closed.
Fines of up to £10,000 for people who fail to self-isolate have already been announced.
