Budding photographers have even managed to capture animals adapting to this new way of life, with one reader spotting a peacock showing off its feathers.

Now we are asking readers to send in photos of their Easter activities in the run-up to the popular holiday on Sunday, April 12.

These photos come after the UK was placed into lockdown last week by Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, in an effort to stop coronavirus spreading.
