Ten North East images have been added to Historic England's archive, showcasing a collection of photographs depicting life in lockdown.

One photograph was taken by the niece of Sunderland community nurse, Fiona Anderson, who died of Covid-19 in April.

Watch @krisjepson's report here:

Forty-eight-year-old Fiona Anderson, a community staff nurse at the Grindon Lane Primary Care Centre, lost her life on Sunday 26 April.

During the clap for carers on Thursday 30 April, many of Fiona's team stood on her street to applaud their beloved colleague.

The nurse's niece, Emma Dullroy, was touched by the event and captured the image in the street.

It was amazing because it was just so nice to see all of her colleagues celebrate what she does as well as celebrate each other, because that’s what they were doing, they were celebrating each other, as well as remembering her life... It’s mad that people are going to be learning about her in the future and it’s mad that people are going to be looking at the photo and interpreting everything that that photo means and what when they look at that photo, what that photo might mean to them.

Fiona Anderson's sister, Angela Anderson, told ITV News Tyne Tees, the photo brought tears to her eyes, because she was unable to attend the clap, due to being in isolation.

It’s such an emotive photo and it just, all of the emotions of the pandemic and everything that’s going on in the world today and the love and the respect for the NHS and the fact that they came out to support, you know, one of their own, a friend and a colleague. Even if you don’t know who Fiona was or what happened, you can just see from that photo the significance behind it and the love and the respect and you know its just such an emotive picture.

The Picturing Lockdown Collection followed a national week-long call out where the public were asked to share images that document their experience of seven days in "lockdown" between 29 April and 5 May, which resulted in nearly 3,000 submissions from across England.

The final Collection of 200 images consists of 100 public submissions, alongside more than 50 newly commissioned works by 10 contemporary artists, including Aidan Moesby from the North East, and the remainder from Historic England's photographers.

The call-out was the first time the public have been asked to capture photographs for the Archive since the Second World War.

It’s all about chronicling this extraordinary moment in time. These are very, very strange times for all of us and hopefully people won’t need to live through it again in the future, so it’s really for future generations to be able to look at this archive and see what life was like.
