Photographer Terry Harris snapped dozens of shoppers walking side-by-side on Lincoln Road in Peterborough outside Iceland supermarket on Friday, March 27.

Images also show a group sat together chatting while sat on a bench while others walk down the road next to each other, with some wearing masks.

A video shows a group of men stopped at the side of the road near the supermarket, seemingly having a normal conversation like any normal day.
