patriotic boss at a Staffordshire firm has given his staff the day off to
celebrate St George’s Day, reports BBC News Online.

cost thousands of pounds in lost production, but bosses would like to make it
an annual event.
at the company, which makes products used for sanding wood and metal, said it
was a "nice surprise".

England that is exported all around the world. So we thought it was only right
