Weatherwatch: Britain rediscovers warm clothes as groups meet outside
Hanging out with friends and family in springtime is not so pleasant if you can’t stop shivering
Anyone who has taken advantage of the UK government’s easing of restrictions in allowing groups of six people to meet outside will have needed to take precautions to stay warm.
Any kind of exercise, walking, cycling or gardening warms you up but most people have no previous experience of sitting still outside, particularly in the record-breaking cold spring weather of the last few weeks. Under any normal circumstances sensible people would go indoors but because of Covid restrictions it has been illegal.
