Mosques around Britain read out the names of NHS staff who have lost their lives during the pandemic during Eid Al-Adha.

The Muslims Doctors Association explained why they're paying tribute:

"Eid al Adha is an Islamic holy day that marks devotion and sacrifice. This Eid we want to remember and honour all the NHS workers who paid the ultimate price by protecting our lives."

"Eid is also a time for celebration. We know that the families of many of our Muslim colleagues who lost their lives on the frontline will be missing their loved ones."

Many mosques read out the names of NHS heroes who gave their lives fighting Covid-19.

Some mosques opted to hold online services, others ensured strict social distancing was in place.
