Fred Sherwood, the Shepshed, Leicester bulk haulage specialist, has taken advantage of one of its trailers being refurbished to show its support for the NHS. The normal livery has been changed to one saying “Thank You NHS”, in appreciation of NHS key workers tackling the coronavirus pandemic.

Director Justin Sherwood, said the idea came from his father, Alan. "We had one of the lorries in for refurbishment last week and instead of the normal livery, my father suggested to do this instead. He's 79, and is isolating at the moment and the NHS are doing a fantastic job, so we just wanted to say thank you."
