A kind farmer is ‘rooting’ for those in need during the cornavirus crisis by donating sacks of spuds.

Alex Marshall from a farm in Papplewick, south of Mansfield, donated 20 bags of potatoes to help those who currently require help as a result of the Coronavirus crisis.

Mr Marshall put together the 12.5kg bags which were then picked up by the Nottinghamshire Police Neighbourhood Support Unit.

Operational Support Demand Management Inspector Tim Ringer said: "It's great that people are wanting to do their bit wherever they can, and we as a police force, will continue to do certain tasks, which might be slightly out of the ordinary, to ensure that people are not going without and that people are safe."

The deliveries were made in line with social distancing and hygiene regulation
