The drastic difference between Sunday and Monday in Cardiff

In just 24-hours, Cardiff city centre went from a ghost town to busting with shoppers as lockdown restrictions were lifted

What a difference a day makes.

The Wales wide firebreak lockdown was lifted on Monday and people flocked back to Wales’ capital as a result.

Just 24-hours earlier Cardiff city centre was a deserted ghost town.

Since October 23, the entire country has been subject to 17 days of firebreak lockdown restrictions – in which non essential shops and hospitality venues were forced to close and people were asked to stay at home.

However, as the restrictions were lifted on November 9, and shops, bars and restaurants were allowed to reopen, the city centre streets looked busier than ever.

These shocking photos show the drastic change in Cardiff Centre between Sunday November 8, and Monday November 9 as lockdown measures eased.
