Pro footballer and hotel owner, Gary Neville, hit headlines today with the news that he is closing both of his hotels. In place of guests, Neville will be offering rooms to NHS workers and medical professionals to support them whilst they self-isolate from family members.

In a video statement Neville said, ‘We’ve been in consultation with health services and our 176 beds will be occupied by National Health Service workers and medical professionals. They will be free of charge and the health workers will be able to stay there without any cost.’

Additionally, the entrepreneur vocalised his plans to protect his staff during Coronavirus:

‘The most important thing is the health of our staff and our guests and we’ve taken this decision with that foremost in our minds.We will not be making anyone redundant or asking anyone to take unpaid leave, we’re working on a package for our staff to make sure they retain income.’
