The streets of Sunderland were empty two years ago as the city conformed to a new way of life aimed at tackling the spread of coronavirus.
With residents only allowed to shop for food and exercise once a day and businesses and leisure facilities ordered to close, the streets of Sunderland became empty as the public adhered to the new regulations.
