Last night, thousands of us around the country came together to clap for those on the frontline of the Coronavirus outbreak: the NHS medical staff treating patients, the carers, support workers and all key workers at this time.An emotional gesture that brought the UK together in gratitude for those working hard to treat everyone affected by the virus. We’re bringing you some of the best videos of people saying thank you to those working for our NHS, and everyone supporting them.
And in Southampton, cars and boats at the docks showed their support, too:
Brilliant moment. It felt awesome to say thank you to every single person caring for the vulnerable in this crisis. As a nation, we will not forget what we owe you #ClapForNHS #ClapForCarerspic.twitter.com/dpypajetMC— David Lammy (@DavidLammy) March 26, 2020

Incredibly touching to hear the applause (and fireworks!) erupt from the windows and balconies around me on the way home from the hospital. Thank you so much everyone – we really value the support you’re all giving us as we do our best to be there for you. 💙💙💙 #ClapForCarers pic.twitter.com/3K5aml4CGR— Tom Dolphin 💦🙏💦 WASH YOUR HANDS (@thomasdolphin) March 26, 2020
