Video diary shows Nottinghamshire triplets getting ready for school

A mother of eight-year-old triplets has filmed a video diary of them getting ready for school on the day they reopened across England.

The triplets - Yimi, Mbetmi and Waimi - said the day was "big" and "important" because they got to see their friends and teachers again.

Mum Esther, from Hucknall in Nottinghamshire, said: "I'm happy for them because they are going to meet their friends."
