The Australian city of Sydney has emerged from lockdown after almost four months, with locals celebrating a range of new freedoms.

People queued for pubs and shops that opened at midnight on Monday specifically for the occasion.

Covid rules had banned household visits and travel beyond a 5km, but most restrictions have now been eased for the fully vaccinated.

Australia’s biggest city was allowed to exit from lockdown after the state of New South Wales reached a 70% double-dose vaccination target for over-16s.
