A campaign to get everyone to 'Clap for our Carers' was a huge success, with rounds of applause heard across the country to show our appreciation for the NHS and other key workers.

People joined in a round of applause at 8pm last night to show how grateful we are to those on the frontline of the country's response to the coronavirus pandemic.

We asked readers to send us videos of their neighbourhoods joining in and we were overwhelmed by the response.

Within just an hour, you had commented more than 300 times. By this morning (Friday) we had more than 400 comments and so many videos showing people clapping in every town and village in north Northamptonshire.

Thank you so much. We have put together a short video showing some of the clips, there were simply too many for us to put into one video but you can scroll through the comments and see more here.

We hope any NHS staff, healthcare professionals, and other key workers who were working last night will see this video.
