Watch: Heartwarming moment a Southampton street sings Happy Birthday to young girl in isolation

Self-isolation did not stop these neighbours from wishing a young girl a happy birthday


A whole neighbourhood in Southampton sang 'Happy Birthday' to Sophia, an 8-year-old girl who couldn't leave the house due to the three-week lockdown imposed by the UK government.

On Monday the government banned gatherings of more than two people - unless they're from the same household - and told everyone apart from essential workers to leave home only to buy food and medicines or to exercise.
