FOUR books have been published on the events of the Covid pandemic.

Former Stocksfield parish councillor Steve Gleadhill has published his series O Brave ‘New Normal’ World, which explores how Covid began up until the events of the summer of 2020.

He said: "The series of four books, which covers events from March 2020 to December 2022, is not intended to be a ‘specialist’ analysis of just one aspect of the virus but provide a layman’s perspective of the ramifications and interconnections that emanated from the crisis.

"They aim to provide a readable and accessible overview for as wide an audience as possible about what we all endured. They cover not just the immediate catastrophic impact but also the longer-term corollaries of the pandemic - some of them still affecting our daily lives even now - as it persisted and re-emerged in different mutations," Steve added.
