A huge crowd of lockdown-defying Londoners have gathered along the River Thames in breach of strict social distancing rules.

Pictures showed mask-free revellers defying social distancing rules to listen to a busker playing a guitar.

Under the country’s second lockdown – which began on November 5 –  outdoor social gatherings are banned.

Two members of different households are permitted to meet outdoors, but two-metre social distancing rules must be abided by. 

One onlooker shared images to Twitter, writing: ‘Can’t believe it’s in lockdown. People gathering aside the river and singing. There’s even a Christmas market beside Cutty sark.’

Another passerby wrote: ‘How can there possibly be a Christmas market tonight with hundreds of people gathering without masks or keeping distance around the Cutty Sark during a nation-wide lockdown? So unresposible!’
