Well that is another hammer blow for our town. I cannot say i was totally surprised but none the less it is very sad for all those workers. This damned virus has caused and has still to unleash further hell on the globes people. I am getting on in years now and i feel utterly heartbroken for the youth of today it really looks very grim ,all i pray for is that there is a vaccine very soon so keep safe all .GB
