BOOZY Brits have been celebrating the August Bank Holiday by hitting the town.

Revellers took to the streets of Leeds and Sheffield to enjoy the long weekend with some people partying a bit too hard after lapping up the pints.

Pub-goers spilled onto the streets of Leeds, joining in a sing-and-dance with a local busker.

This weekend would have been Leeds Festival but revellers had to enjoy the live street music instead of big headliners.

Despite the chilly weather and nightclubs being shut, girls were out in force in their party attire.

Dance floors and nightclubs are not allowed under Covid-19 rules with revellers encourage to dance beside their tables.

Two girls were spotted keeping COVID-19 safe, wearing their face masks on the busy streets showing people you can have fun and keep safe.

However, some revellers had a few too many drinks, ending up on the floor in fits of laughter in Sheffield.

Brits are set to experience the coldest August Bank Holiday Monday on record with frost following a weekend washout.

This year’s cold snap makes for a contrast with the same time last year, when the UK was basking in a 33C heatwave.

Last year’s August Bank Holiday Monday was the hottest on record, with 33.2C recorded at Heathrow.

Despite the chilly weather, Brits boozed the night away, without feeling the normal Monday morning guilt.

August Bank Holiday is the last English bank holiday of the year, apart from Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

It’s also the weekend of London’s Notting Hill Carnival – which usually attracts over one million people to the city.

But of course, it has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Cops fear that there will be many illegal raves across the UK to replace the August Bank Holiday party tradition.
