Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: People pay respects on UK lockdown anniversary as landmarks light up” – below is their description.

People held candles and visited with neighbours at a distance to pay respects to those lost over the past year and acknowledge the sacrifices made on the one-year anniversary of the U.K.’s first COVID-19 lockdown.

“I’m just here to remember all the people who are not here,” London resident Barbara Penswick said, adding she had lost a number of people in the past year.

As people came together, landmarks in England and Wales, including the London Eye and Cardiff Castle, lit up to also acknowledge the anniversary.
