DOZENS of children from across Romsey and Test Valley have been going back to school this week as coronavirus lockdown continues to ease across the county.

Photos have been sent in from our readers of pupils who are eager to get back into the classroom, riding scooters and posing with siblings.

One budding photographer even managed to capture a boy setting off to school with his hand sanitiser at the ready.

Now we are asking readers to keep sending in photos of their summer antics, including any stories where residents have helped key workers and the community.

This comes as one hospital patient in Hampshire died after testing positive for coronavirus, according to figures released by the NHS on Tuesday.

Daily figures cover University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS), Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust and Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
