SOUTHAMPTON residents enjoyed going to the pub for the first time in over three months as lockdown measures eased.

One pub-goer was "ecstatic" to be drinking with friends once again. 

Meanwhile, others described being over the moon at getting back to normality.

Hairdressers and barbershops also opened their doors on Saturday with queues forming outside many.

Despite scenes of joy the police and NHS have urged people to have "safe and responsible" as "Covid-19 is still here".
