No lockdown for Devon deer

Are they lost? We have no I deer

As locals remain in lockdown amid the coronavirus outbreak, life's different if you're a deer.

Two of them decided to take a stroll through Woolacombe on Thursday.

The unexpected visitors, who obeyed social distancing rules, enjoyed a spot of quieter-than-normal village life. Woolacombe's usually packed with tourists this time of year. 

Local resident Richard Waldnon captured the footage on his mobile phone before uploading it for the community to see. He wrote: 'Absolutely incredible! Deer running through Wollacombe village.' 

On Thursday's daily press conference, prime minister Boris Johnson said that the UK has passed the peak of the virus. Mr Johnson also said that he'll "deliver a comprehensive plan" next week which could see the lockdown eased.
