    Deb O'Hara, 49, from Mansfield, said the new tier 3 restrictions mean her son's wedding reception can't go ahead in mid-November as planned, although the service can.

    She was getting her nails done in preparation as it's the last day she will be able to.

    She said: "So from tomorrow I won't be able to go in to a nail salon, but I can go to a hairdressers. What is that? I'm gutted by the tier three."

    She was one of a number of women braving the rain to queue for a last-minute nail appointment.

    Another was Rachael Redmile, 40. She said: "They should go one way or the other - if they're going to put us in lockdown, then get it over with.

    "If they want to go with herd immunity and shield the vulnerable, get it over with. I don't understand how everything can be open but we can't see our families? It's the world gone crazy. People want to see their family over Christmas."

    Jon Perkins is the managing director of The Carriage Hall, a wedding venue in Nottingham.

    He said: "We were actually meant to be having a wedding here tomorrow so it's been very upsetting for the bride and groom having to make complete changes to their plans.

    "We can still go ahead with the official ceremony but unfortunately that is it.

    "We were also meant to be having a wedding reception here on Saturday, which also can't go ahead."

    Mr Perkins said the new restrictions also come as another blow to the wedding industry that has had an "extremely tough" year.

    Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council Kay Cutts says the decision to ban shops from selling alcohol after 21:00 in the city and county as part of the tier three restrictions was a request from police.

    "It's very much something the police wanted to see," she said.

    "In the spring time we had a lot of parties into the small hours of the morning, almost daylight sometimes and people getting together in the park drinking and we had to have dispersal orders there."
