Civic leaders in Derby have described the announcement of job losses at Bondholder Rolls-Royce as heart-breaking for the workers, the company and the city and have pledged to do all it can to stand with those affected.
Derby City Council is asking thousands of Derby businesses how the Coronavirus pandemic is impacting their operations and what help they need to recover.
The study will help the city shape its plans to kick-start the local economy post-lockdown and tailor the support it can offer to companies.

I'm in my what seems like the hundredth week of lockdown although technically I can go out if I want to but, I don't yet want too so I'm not! I'm hoping that soon I will feel confident enough to venture out there once the transmission figures look safe enough!

Derby Museums today launches its brand new microsite, Derby Museums from Home, making new online content accessible throughout the lockdown.
The hashtag, #MuseumFromHome, first emerged on social media in March as museums around the world were forced to close in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. It has since grown to become a global phenomenon with museums near and far taking to the web to showcase their collections digitally and engage with their audiences in all manner of creative and innovative ways.
Subject to authorisation by the government
