Labour councillors at Peterborough City Council - Cllr Amjad Iqbal (Central ward) and Cllr Lucinda Robinson (Ravensthorpe) - have been preparing and cooking dozens of meals to thank the NHS for their ‘selfless service’.

Fellow Labour councillor Dr Shabina Qayyum, who was at the hospital to receive the food on behalf of staff, found the donation “heart-warming”.

She said: “At a time when mosques would usually be open in the city, as a result of the Covid-19 situation the charity we extend in Ramadan should be shown to the workers on the frontline.”
