British Cleaning Council Chairman Paul Thrupp has been speaking on BBC radio about the important role the nation’s cleaners have during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Paul appeared twice on BBC 5 Live, first in an interview which went out on the evening of Wednesday 25 March in the Sarah Brett show. The next morning, he took part in the station’s Wake Up to Money show.
