Mr Darren Tahir (47) was faced with an uncertain future when he was made redundant from his job of 17 years as a children's social care worker.

However, as one door closed, another opened and Darren decided to set up Covid-19 Cleaning Care Solutions, his one-man business which will go into pubs, restaurants, schools and other public buildings to deep clean using a special 90 day solution.

Darren said: "My heart has always been in social care. My later mum worked as a care worker so I was very sad to have to leave it. I decided to set up my own business but my ultimate goal is to be able to take on young people who have had it hard in life.

"Given the current climate, I thought it would be a good idea to set up a sanitising business. I use what's known as electro static spraying from a wireless machine which gives 90 days protection. I think this will be very reassuring for local businesses and their customers."

Darren revealed he already has a number of bookings from local pubs keen to be 'Covid-ready' before the lockdown is lifted for hospitality, and has had inquiries from gyms and other public buildings.
