A couple in Gosforth described these occasions as "very moving" and went on to add "it makes us proud to be British."

These nationwide minutes of appreciation are going to be taking place weekly - every Thursday throughout the crisis and it will continue to spread the love and appreciation for those in the NHS whom who we just couldn't be without.
