14 photos of Sunderland as shops reopen after second lockdown
A queue formed outside Primark early today as shoppers returned to the city centre.
Non-essential retailers were allowed to reopen on December 2 as Sunderland left lockdown to enter the new Tier 3.
The day started quietly, with the ever-popular Primark the main focus of shoppers’ attentions.
As opening times approached, groups also began to queue outside crisis-hit department store Debenhams and TK Maxx.
