Shoppers have been flocking to Manchester city centre as stores open their doors for Boxing Day.

Hectic scenes from bustling streets and packed stores have become something of a tradition, as shoppers return for the start of the post-Christmas sales, and this year looked not much different, despite the pandemic.

As December 26 has fallen on a Sunday this year, shops across the city opened their doors slightly later than on a normal Boxing Day.

Streets were quiet across the city centre earlier this morning, but after the first shops opened their doors, queues formed across the city centre, including a crowd outside Primark on Market Street, and queues outside Selfridges.
