It's Wild Wednesday! Dozens flock to lockdown-flouting gym as it reopens on the stroke of midnight - with pubs across the country preparing to welcome revellers back and more than a MILLION people queuing online for Debenhams fire-sale bargains

People in England were quick to seize upon greater freedoms after the national lockdown ended and was replaced by a tiered system of restrictions. Some of the most hardcore fitness fanatics even hit the weights for a midnight workout as one London gym owner threw open his doors at the stroke of midnight.   All non-essential shops are allowed to open from today, paving the way for a festive spending spree that will likely drive people back to the nation's ailing high streets.  A fire sale at Debenhams is expected to fuel the shopping bonanza as bargain-hunters are lured by price cuts of up to 70 per cent ahead of the company's impending liquidation following the collapse of rescue talks. A precursor to today's likely stampede for generous discounts - as the chain reopens its soon-to-be axed 124 stores - was seen last night when more than a million people swamped the department store's website.   The sudden burst of activity as England flings off the blanket restrictions

England wakes up to life after lockdown: Country prepares for first day in new tiers system with Primark shoppers queuing from 5AM as stores reopen for ‘wild Wednesday’, gyms open overnight, salons raring to go and pubs serve their first pints

England's lockdown is over and today shoppers used their return to freedom to queue outside Primark before dawn to grab pre-Christmas bargains on Wild Wednesday.   Fitness fanatics also headed for the gym at midnight, others had haircuts at 1am or went to the golf course at first light while commuters went back to the office for the first time since early November as Boris Johnson's controversial tiers system was approved in the Commons last night. From Midnight 99 per cent of England was placed in Tier 2 or Tier 3 - meaning they are banned from all indoor socialising with other households apart from over the Christmas period. Just Cornwall, the Isle of Wight and the Isles of Scilly are in Tier 1. But despite the restrictions on 55million people, many are excited about returning to the pub from breakfast time or meeting friends outside for a pint later as long as they have a 'substantial meal'. People snaked around the block outside Primark in the Birmingham Bullring th
