THERE is a new man behind the wheel of Burnley’s Chorley Nissan car dealership.

Newly-appointed sales manager Andy Blakeman is gearing up for a new challenge having spent the previous two years as a team leader at the group’s Preston branch.

Andy’s promotion came just days after he completed one of the most demanding challenges of his life – the gruelling 12-mile charity obstacle course Tough Mudder.

The 34-year-old said: “Stepping up to the role of sales manager is going to be a challenge but I’m ready for anything after taking part in Tough Mudder.”

Andy took part in the event in Cheshire to raise money for Help For Heroes, completing the course in an impressive time of 2 hours 47 minutes.
