fear and loathing

3rd April 2020, Alnmouth, 6am

An early rise and a short drive to Alnmouth.

We're under a lot of restrictions and the car parks are closed off with stones and signs.  Because I've been commissioned to take inspirational photographs for the NHS I can justify being there (cos I'm working) but there is such a climate of fear, anger from locals and heavy threats from the police that it felt very uncomfortable.  I got my photos (and was never within 200m of anyone else never mind 2m!) but I've never felt so ill at ease on a beach before.
