Bristol woman finds hilarious solution to being separated from her NHS key worker boyfriend during lockdown

A woman from Coalpit Heath in Bristol has found an ingenious solution to being separated from her boyfriend during the coronavirus pandemic.

Hayley Robbin's partner Luke is a radiographer at the Royal United Hospital. It's a job that puts him at high risk and the pair are having to stay away from each other to stop the spread of Covid-19.

The couple have no idea when they'll be able to see each other again so Hayley decided to keep everyone's spirits high by creating a version of Luke to have around the house. She's been sending the photos to him and their families to give them something to smile about.

As a bit of fun whilst I'm not able to see my partner due to not living together and him being an NHS worker, which highlights the difficult time they are having, I have created my own version of him and have him doing daily stuff with us. It's all in the name of fun.
