As beloved keyworkers, Britain’s journalists will be celebrated tonight as the nation steps outside for a minute’s applause.
Just days after NHS keyworkers were applauded, and coming as another movement is launched for logistics staff, journalists will be shown just how much the country loves them.
Journalist fan Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “I and all my neighbours will be out tonight at 8pm to clap wildly for journalists.
“They all do a fantastic job. Everyone especially loves all the tabloid journalists and the ones at the Daily Mail.”
A spokesman for the Suffolk Gazette said: “It was only a matter of the time before the nation decided to collectively show its appreciation for our noble profession.
“It’s been many years since I was given the clap.”
The growing support is being felt on Twitter with news spreading via the hashtag #GiveJournalistsTheClap
