Outdoor workers - including constructions workers, landscapers and gardeners - have returned to work with hardware stores, DIY shops and garden centres re-opening their doors.

Car and bike repair shops have also re-opening, alongside IT and phone shops, office suppliers, electrical stores and a number of others.
