There are three bank holiday Mondays lined up for next month - including an extra special one for this year.

Many people in the country will enjoy an extra day off on Monday 1, 8 and 29 May for May Bank holiday, Spring Bank Holiday, and the King’s coronation weekend.

With extra time in the calendar earmarked for life admin, catching up with family and friends, and anything else that needs sorting, we asked people in Manchester what they normally get up to on a bank holiday weekend. We recognise that some people will still be working during these bank holidays, so we asked locals what they think about having three so close together and whether they should be spread out across the year.
