‘Sombre, grateful’ nation to hold silent tribute to key workers who have died

People are being asked to pause for a minute’s silence to remember the key workers who have died in the coronavirus pandemic.

The tribute on Tuesday at 11am will reflect the sacrifices made and the appreciation of a “sombre but grateful nation”, the chief executive of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) said.

Unison, the Royal College of Midwives and the RCN launched a campaign last week for the nation to take a moment to honour frontline staff who have died during the Covid-19 crisis.

Between them the organisations represent more than a million NHS and public service workers including porters, refuse collectors and care staff.

Britain’s biggest holiday firm is selling Spanish holidays for mid-May
Exclusive: Tui is charging £323 for a week’s self-catering in the resort of Salou, including flights from Manchester to Reus and coach transfers, on 15 May

Britain's biggest holiday firm is selling Spanish beach packages to the Costa Dorada for departure on 15 May – despite the severe lockdown measures in force in both the UK and Spain.

Travel to a UK airport is in breach of current lockdown rules for the purposes of a holiday flight, and the Foreign Office warns against all-but-essential travel abroad until further notice.

Tui appears confident, however, that the regulations will be eased sufficiently for a journey to Manchester airport.

Hm, maybe Roger was right, could it be they're desperate to get cash flowing in?

Only suitable for viewing if you aren't offended by images of a sexual nature:




Tacoma Fire Department is a relatively new USA comedy series set in a fire station in Tacoma, Washington.

May or may not get snapped up for UK TV.
