These were the scenes in Preston on the hottest day of 2021 so far as lockdown restrictions ease
Preston folk made the most of the sunny weather by hitting the parks on the hottest day of the year so far yesterday.
This week people were given more freedom, including being able to meet friends and play sport outdoors, as lockdown restrictions were relaxed across the county.
Our photographer, Neil Cross, was out and about around Preston to see how the day went as temperatures reached 20C.
