8.15am: Arrive at office  

I have been coming into the office every day throughout the crisis. We have three workshops – two in Rotherham and one in Chapeltown, near Sheffield, where I am based – and I can’t expect my workshop staff to come in and fix vehicles while I’m at home. It would send completely the wrong message. And I want to make sure the team is okay.
