International Nurses' Day is celebrated around the world each year on 12 May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth. This year in particular it’s an extra special occasion because not only does it fall during International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, it also marks the 200th anniversary of Nightingale’s birth.

The public has been asked to “shine a light” on Tuesday to mark International Nurses Day and the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale birth

A huge thank you to all the nurses for the incredible work you do.

Escalating each week. All for showing support but for the time of night need to be a bit considerate for those with little kids and those on shifts that need to sleep then
Won't it still be light at 20:30?

It's the cretins with fireworks that really annoy me. My dog being scared has become a weekly event now.

It's not showing support, it's just turned into one-upmanship.

We've not had fireworks but public building have been lit up. The hospital for example was turned blue this week.

My bad, just make sure you don't light a candle and set your curtains on fire or we'll be clapping for the fire brigade next week
