Weekly clapping is back in Guernsey tonight to mark International Nurses Day.

Islanders are being encouraged to join in at 7pm this evening (12 May) to thank all the island's nurses.

Applauding frontline workers became a staple part of our schedules during the first lockdown, but came to an end last May.

Meanwhile, Jersey's government has thanked its nurses on social media. Chief Nurse Rose Naylor said: "I’m proud of all our nurses – from the newly qualified to the most experienced".
