Calls for the Government to learn the lessons of previous lockdowns when they make their decisions around this one.  

The transport industry is frustrated at road-blocks holding up freight, and dates for expired warrants of fitness not being automatically extended.

Road Transport Forum Chief Executive Nick Leggett told Kate Hawkesby the decision-makers aren't helping. 

"It seems as though they're gripped by this timidity, and we don't understand where it is coming from. We think this stuff should be easier the second or third time around, not harder."
