Devon man 'hula-hoops' outside home to thank NHS

A Devon man has found an unusual way to combine his daily exercise with supporting the NHS.

Sam Bolitho used to work for the Devon Partnership NHS Trust.

He's been 'hula-hooping' outside his home whilst proudly displaying a sign saying "Thank U NHS".

Sam says he decided on the unusual activity because he wanted to recognise the great work being done by our health service amid the COVID-19 epidemic.

I've seen quite a lot of my (former) colleagues and hopefully this will support them in what they're doing - because they're doing a great job for all of us.

Sam says he has been getting a lot of thumbs up and horn toots and is "glad that's it's being well received".
