Coronavirus: D:Ream hit becomes Nottingham's lockdown anthem

A 90s number one hit has been blasted out across Nottingham city centre every Thursday at 20:00 as the city applauds key workers each week.

D:Ream's Things Can Only Get Better has become an anthem for residents - and it can be heard up to two miles away.

The 1994 song has been played on huge speakers for three weeks as people gather on balconies to Clap for Carers.

DJ Chris Hailes, who was behind the idea, and said he chose the song because it is "relevant to the times".

"Everybody knows it - young and old. It lifts spirits. It's a good, feel-good song," he said.
