Families in a Cheshire street have been sharing a novel form of daily exercise during the coronavirus lockdown, by assembling outside their homes each morning for some "socially-distant" dancing.

Video shows people living on the road in Frodsham demonstrating their best moves after venturing out of their front doors for the bout of communal activity to music.

Elsa Williams is among the street's residents and posted the footage on Twitter.

"Socially distant dancing happens every day on our road at 11am during #lockdown. This was day seven," she said.

She explained the sessions were led by local fitness instructor Janet Woodcock, which she said only last 10 minutes so it causes "minimal disturbance".

"Mostly our road is kids and elderly residents who are self isolating, so they look forward to it."
