Police were seen speaking to individuals sunbathing alone or with a partner in Greenwich Park, Hyde Park and St James' Park in London yesterday.
Yet B&Q's decision to reopen 130 stores saw massive queues forming outside its outlets in Watford, Edinburgh, Bristol and Swansea, as people used the shutdown to catch up on DIY.
