The year also saw Britain remove itself from the EU bloc with the end of year marking the date it becomes an independent country – unless the politicians decide to extend the withdrawal period again.

A hero called Patrick Hutchinson also emerged as the Black Lives Matter movement grew in prominence.

Hutchinson, a BLM supporter, was pictured carrying a counter-demonstrator to safety when violent clashes broke out in London following the death of George Floyd in the US.

Over in the US, Donald Trump’s presidency looks to be drawing to an end after he lost the election to rival Joe Biden – but Trump still maintains he won and refuses to concede.

With all the tumultuous events, 2020 was a year few people will forget in a hurry.
