A steel and metal works company is showing its support to the NHS by erecting a huge, bright star on one of their cranes.

E & R Meakes, which is based in Lane End in High Wycombe, put up the star at the end of March, as a mark of solidarity to those who are working on the frontline, as the country battles against the coronavirus.
