THE FORMER boss of the McLaren Formula One team will be providing one million free meals to frontline NHS workers – starting at the John Radcliffe Hospital today.

Businessman Ron Dennis said he co-founded to feed thousands of hospital staff because he was “in awe” of their work to save lives during the coronavirus pandemic and wanted to give them 'one less thing to worry about'.

Deliveries will start at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Headington today, before being rolled out to Government-targeted locations.
