Plasterer Antony Cauvin from Stratford-upon-Avon, UK has created a shower curtain with arms which enables him to give a hug to his grandmother Lily after months not being able to because of the current situation.
The footage, filmed by his wife Miriam, shows them giggling as they give each other a big hug. Cauvin has said that the sleeves and the curtain are disinfected after each hug and anyone who uses it has to wear a pair of disposable gloves for extra safety.
He has left it in his grandparents’ garden for their seven other grandchildren and three great-grandchildren to use.
This followed after 10-year-old girl called Paige from California created a similar contraption to be able to hug her own grandparents.
