Outside the Standard Fishbar, now one of only five places open at 7pm on a Friday evening (the others: two newsagents, a convenience store and M&S Simply Food - all restaurants and the pub shut, of course). Gus and I queued for about 25 minutes to get our take-aways for the family. By the time we left, the queue - well socially distanced - was even longer, with about 14 individuals or couples waiting patiently.

Only two customers are allowed inside at a time: one at the counter, and another in a tape-marked box in the corner.
