Firefighters on the Isle of Wight say they are "forever grateful" to all key workers, as they wave goodbye to the NHS heart sign.

It was erected on Newport fire station's Drill Tower as a thank you to St Mary's Hospital workers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, as the country returns to some sort of normality, the decision has now been taken to remove the heart.

Posting on Twitter, Newport's Bluewatch said:

"It may be down but we will be forever grateful to the NHS staff and all key workers that have done so much for us all. Thank you."
