A national salute is set to take place to honour the hardworking NHS staff who are trying to battle coronavirus.

In a gesture of thanks to the frontline healthcare heroes, everyone across the nation has been invited to join a mass round of applause from their doorsteps, windows and balconies tonight at 8pm.

We are pleading with everyone who is taking part to send us your pictures and videos, don't forget to add age name, age and location!

Help us send out a mass thank you for all the hard work they're doing.

You can send videos and pictures to news.carlisle@cnmedia.co.uk or on our Facebook page.
