Many car manufacturers have been joining the effort against coronavirus. While MG’s contribution is akin to ‘boots on the ground’, companies like Vauxhall, Nissan and McLaren are working on ventilator supply. Nissan and Vauxhall will be producing them, while McLaren has been on design duty.

MG launched the ZS EV last year, pitching it as the ‘first truly affordable family electric car’. However, MG’s £3,500 contribution has elapsed, as has the old plug-in grant. With the new £3,000 grant, it’s now £25,495. Still quite impressive for an electric family crossover good for 163 miles of range.

Ant and Dec have paid tribute to NHS staff and frontline workers in the battle with coronavirus at the opening of the NHS Nightingale Hospital North East. The pair recorded video messages for the virtual ceremony, which was attended only by members of Team Northumbria – the NHS staff, businesses and organisations who transformed the building in to a 460-bed hospital. Dec, real name Declan Donnelly, said: “It’s hard to imagine that a few short weeks ago this building was being readied as the Sunderland Innovation Centre and today, thanks to more than 300 people working around the clock, it’s been transformed into a state-of-the-art, 460-bed hospital.”
