People flock to the beach as lockdown restrictions ease in England

Social Distance and the Sun

After several weeks of a strict lockdown in England, restrictions have become more relaxed and people have ventured outside to parks, gardens, and beaches. 

Photographer Martin Godwin captured the efforts of those who flocked to the beaches of Broadstairs, Kent to remain socially distant. 

Despite these efforts, as the weather gets even warmer in England there is increased concern that social distancing will become less of a priority to those wanting to get out of the house.
