Coronavirus: 'My beach will survive', says Italian grandad

As many European countries continue to ease their lockdowns, beach resorts in Italy are gearing up for a Covid-secure 2020 season.

Face masks, hand sanitiser and more space between sun-loungers are being put in place.

And one-way systems to enter and exit beaches as well as food deliveries direct to sunbathers are also being considered.
