"Last call for Lockdown Airways": NHS midwife and family go to Costa del Garden in brilliant video

A West Yorkshire family made the best of the good weather during lockdown by 'going on holiday' in their garden.

NHS midwife Stacey Byrne, her husband Dom and four children made the video to bring a smile to the faces of family and friends stuck indoors.

Stacey plays air hostess while the rest of the family go through security and duty-free before taking their seats on the plane, which looks suspiciously like a room in their Ossett home.

After 'landing' the family, including Lydia, Austin, Finley and little Jenson, take a dip in the garden hot tub, the closest they can get to feeling like they are on holiday.

On the plane and in the pool.

Stacey, who works at Barnsley Hospital, said: "We did it initially to send to our family to cheer them up and because we had seen all the stories of people not being able to go on holiday, so we thought we’d come up with a fun way to make your own holiday.

"We sent the video to my mum, sister and my nieces who said we should post it on Facebook.

"We used items in the house as props and got all four of the children involved."

The family are unsure if their real life holiday will happen this year, as they are booked to go to Spain in August.

Still, Costa del Garden doesn't look so bad!
