IT was noticeable how busy everywhere was at the weekend.

Certainly the nice weather will have encouraged people to get outside in greater numbers.

But now the roadmap has been published, does that mean people will increasingly stop following the rules?

It appears that way.

We could hardly walk down the pavement without being confronted by mums with prams, runners and groups of young people.

None really socially distancing and it felt like we were the only ones moving out of the way.

There are still months until June, but I got the distinct impression people have had enough of lockdown.

The number of vehicles on the road also seem like a usual Saturday.

I doubt every journey was essential anyway.
