Pensioner Vijay Nair, out with a walking stick, said: “I waited for this day for so long.”

He lives alone in an apartment on the beachfront.

“It’s been torture to look outside and not take advantage of what we have, but I realise it was for my own good. I’m just happy that after 35 days, I can go back to my daily habit of walking out here every morning.”

Jackie and Jeanie Le Grange could hardly contain their excited Weimaraner dogs, Waldo and Klaus.

“We used to run with them every day here or at Jamieson Park, so they are beyond excited to be back,” said Jack before Waldo sprinted off with him.
