Rainbows continue to be used by residents in Sidmouth and Ottery St Mary as a sign of positivity and support for the NHS during the coronavirus lockdown.

Pictures of rainbows drawn/painted and displayed in windows and doors have been keeping spirits up during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Some have created multi-coloured paper chains while others have declared their love for the NHS.

Since appealing to our readers for these colourful messages of support, the Herald has been inundated with photographs.

And we want that to continue.
