SUPERCAR makers McLaren have donated facemasks and other equipment to the NHS from its Rotherham factory.

Some 100 masks, 35 boxes of gloves and 30 pairs of overalls have been handed over to help in the coronavirus battle.

Wes Jacklin (pictured), plant director at the McLaren Composites Technology Centre, said the items were being used by Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital.

He added: “Alongside staying at home, it’s one small way we can help support our hard-working NHS frontline staff in their battle against coronavirus.”

McLaren’s factory, which opened in 2018, employs 100 people and makes the carbon fibre tubs for its range of supercars.
