Favourite TV Programme growing up: Tough choice. I was a huge fan of Blue Peter - this was the era of John Noakes. I then progressed to The Dukes of Hazzard and The Professionals - not sure what that says about me but I loved the cars. Bodie and Doyle’s Ford Capri was up there with the best.
Favourite film quote: My kids love Star Wars and in one of the movies I watched with them the other day Yoda said “Do, or do not. There is no 'try'."
Outside of work, most likely to be found: Spending time with my wife and two sons. Getting out on my mountain bike.
