Today l am hearing they have received a major order and have opened a new assembly line in the sports hall at King Edward’s School to give them more room to deal with this order.

A spokesperson for Foldall told me:

‘Yes, we just moved yesterday. Everything is happening very fast.

Our aim is to reach 10,000 masks a day. We are currently still at 5000.’
