Corona Virus Crisis : WHSmith takes out £120 million loan

WHSmith has secured a £120,000,000 loan and said it will look to raise more cash as it tries to navigate its way through the coronavirus crisis. The high street retailer, which had to shut 60% of its premises after the Government called for the closure of non-essential stores, has suffered a ‘substantial downturn in economic activity’, it said. Branches that include Post Offices or those in hospitals have remained open. WHSmith was the first retailer to issue a profits warning from the Covid-19 outbreak as the pandemic hit its travel business, with the company projecting £30m and £40m could be wiped off this year’s underlying pre-tax profits.

Cabinet minister ‘visited parents during coronavirus lockdown’

A cabinet minister has defended visiting his parents during the coronavirus lockdown, despite repeatedly urging the public to stay at home. Housing secretary Robert Jenrick made the 40-mile trip having told others to avoid non-essential travel, The Guardian revealed.

A witness told the paper that they saw Mr Jenrick, 38, visiting the property at the weekend. They said he was seen in the front garden of the detached house in a Shropshire village, where his father and mother, aged 79 and 69, live. It is more than an hour’s drive from the MP’s home in Herefordshire.

Mr Jenrick has since admitted making the visit but said he went to drop off essential medicines and food to his parents, who are self-isolating.
