Guernsey businesses reopen as phase four begins

Businesses across Guernsey have been expressing their relief as they returned to work for the first time in more than two months.

Shops, gyms and hotels were among those opening their doors for the first time since lockdown began.

They were able to reopen as the island moved into phase four of its lockdown exit strategy.

Hairdressers were also back in business with many islanders getting a trim on Saturday.

Sue Naftel was one of the first islanders to get her haircut at the weekend, relaxing into the chair just seconds past midnight.

Restaurants also returned with many islanders going out for a meal. Andrew Coleman owns La Barberie hotel and restaurant and he is hopeful people will support local throughout the summer.
