TMD Friction’s 550 staff on the Oakesway Industrial Estate each got a cracking little gift – with plant boss Tom Russell and production manager Bill Pemplington getting into Eater bunny outfits.

Easter eggs were also given out to staff at the company’s three other UK sites in Elvington, Cleckheaton and Warrington.

Mr Russell said: “Our staff work so hard and this little gesture was really a bit of fun, a thank you to them for their continued efforts, done in a way that we knew would give them a smile.

"But it was all in the spirit of Easter and something we like to do from time to time.”
