A socially distant milestone birthday

Residents on an English street came together to hold a socially distant 90th birthday party in their neighbour's honour.

Dennis Richmond's neighbors, armed with banners, musical instruments, and drinks, stood in their shared street and their front gardens to wish him a happy birthday.

"I still think you're all bonkers," Richmond told his laughing neighbours, raising a glass.

Social distancing has been introduced by many governments around the world.

It essentially means avoiding face-to-face contact as much as possible.

But for the newly turned 90-year old Richmond, there was a moment of levity to highlight his special day.

"The banners, the posters, the horrible singing.

Rather good, yeah I enjoyed that," he said, smiling.
