TODAY marks 100 days of the unprecedented coronavirus lockdown.

On March 23, life as we know it changed beyond all recognition.

Workers swapped offices for back rooms, thousands were put on furlough and the school gates slammed shut for most pupils.

People were told they were only allowed to leave their homes for limited reasons, including shopping for food, exercise once per day, and medical needs.

All shops selling non-essential goods were told to close, gatherings of more than two people in public were banned, all events including weddings - but excluding funerals - were cancelled.

While the devastating pandemic gripped the nation, people tried to cope with the unfolding situation as best they could. From Zoom catch-ups with friends to online pub quizzes and the weekly clap for carers, everyone was finding ways to make the best of a bad situation.

The Lancashire Telegraph asked for your best pictures to sum up the past 100 days.
