South Londoners once again opened their front doors and windows last night to pay tribute to NHS and key workers, and five weeks in, residents have been getting a little creative in how they express their thanks.

Now five weeks into the #Clapforcarers initiative, and thousands are still joining in by clapping, shouting, singing and dancing at 8pm each Thursday.

In Greenwich, one particular street went above and beyond in their weekly tribute.

Filmed and published on Twitter, residents joined in with a passionate rendition of 'You Raise Me Up" in a unique effort to thank the NHS for its hardwork.

Families are pictured watching, cheering and joining in with the song, belted out by a man on a microphone.



Greenwich Council leader Dan Thorpe tweeted out in response to the video, proclaiming "wow wow wow, what a scene!"

The councillor said he "honestly hopes this continues after this crisis is over. Such a sense of togetherness."

Similar scenes were captured in Charlton, where the entire street appeared to be dancing along to 'Don't stop me now' by Prince.



In Croydon, the famous brick towers of the Ikea were lit up in blue to show appreciation for NHS workers looking after the UK's coronavirus patients.



The site in south London was illuminated on Thursday night by a local lighting company who said they wanted to light up the biggest thing in their local area. This is just one of the creative ways people have been coming up with.



The UK Covid-19 death count currently sits at 18,738, but socially distancing and lockdown rules are said to be working, and the public are once again showing their resilience and compassion.

Annemarie Plas, who started the Clap for our Carers movement in the UK, told Sky News she hopes the appreciation for carers continues after the lockdown eases because they are the "backbone of society."

Emergency services and local south London instituions have also been joining in with what now seems to be a weekly tradition.

Here's some of the best pictures and clips from last night.
