Cheshire RAF veteran sets up 'heroes for hire' handyman firm

Ex-RAF serviceman Nigel Blanchard has created his own "army" of fully-qualified handymen sourced entirely from ex-armed forces personnel.

Former soldiers, sailors, and airmen have been trained in property maintenance including repairs, tiling, plastering, plumbing, carpentry, painting and decorating before being given a job.

Mr Blanchard, from Winsford, Cheshire, said: "The civilian world out there... they say they want to help our veterans but they don't."

He said women are welcome to apply although no females have so far.
