BUILDINGS across Tilehurst lit up in blue last night one year on from the UK's first coronavirus lockdown.

The event Turn Tilehurst Blue was to mark the anniversary of the first lockdown and thank the NHS and all key workers.

It was also a chance to reflect on the loved ones we have lost during the pandemic.
