The drinkers got carried away in pubs and bars in central London – with photos showing the streets of Soho battered on “Super Saturday”.

For the first time since March, pubs and bars in England have been allowed to reopen, and punters have taken full advantage.

But the scenes raised the alarm, as the rate of R in London again exceeded 1.

Scientists called on the public to respect the rules of social distancing and to stay two meters apart if possible, but there was little evidence that this was happening.

A man who crossed the busy streets this afternoon told Mirror Online: “Walking on old Compton Street looked like wading in a petri dish.

“And it was around 4:30 pm. There was not much chance of being socially distanced even when walking on the street.”

A shocked woman wrote on Twitter: “I just saw scenes if the Soho pubs … my heart goes to the health workers and their families who died from Covid to save us … disgusting disrespect . ”

And a man shared a video of groups gathered in the streets, writing, “The locking of Soho is over.”

Another was annoyed: “I just saw the scenes of Soho. It is as if the health workers who risked their lives trying to cope with the pandemic were just wasting their time.”

Earlier today, the World Health Organization said the number of daily infections was the highest since the pandemic began.

The delighted punters expressed their joy after finally being allowed to set foot in their local boozers.

A man named Jimmy said earlier, “It’s great to be back.

“I was at night, I finished my shift … I went home to take a shower and I entered.

“Having my first Carling was like a spicy angel on the tip of my tongue. It’s great that he’s back on the draft. I’m fed up with cans in the house.”

England’s chief doctor, Professor Chris Whitty, yesterday warned that “this virus is far from gone”.

He added: “It will not go away for a long time.

“No one watching this thinks it is a safe next step.

“We have to be absolutely serious about this.”

He warned that a second wave is “quite a possibility” because the locking restrictions are relaxed.

More than half of voters believe the hotel industry was reopened too soon, according to a new poll.

Some 52% think that outlets like pubs and restaurants resume their activities early, according to the Opinium survey.

The instant survey shows that 73% expect a second Covid-19 outbreak this year.

He says the government’s disapproval rate is 49% – with only 30% approving his performance.

The survey also reveals that 53% of people think that the relaxation of the locking occurs too quickly.
