OXFORD celebrated the traditional May morning virtually earlier today.

Normally, thousands would gather outside Magdalen College from 5am to hear the bells and choristers from the Great Tower.

However, due to the coronavirus lockdown, the college released a video at 6am this morning to celebrate the event.

There was none of the normal Morris dancing and folk singing in the city centre, although the Eynsham Morris dancers celebrated whilst social distancing.

Horns of Plenty Oxford also failed to let the lockdown get in the way of some May morning fun as they played 'Somewhere over the rainbow' in over 100 sites across the city.
