Shops and businesses in the town centre have reopened today as Swindon entered Tier 2 restrictions. 

The majority of businesses had to close throughout November thanks to the second national lockdown only allowing essential stores to remain open. 

But with the reopening of stores, hairdressers, pubs and bars, the town centre saw a bumper crowd of shoppers looking for Christmas deals.
