The COVID-19 files: Episode 1 - The travel industry

Shoosmiths’ Public Inquiries team is delighted to present a series of podcasts in respect of reflections and experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hosted by Hayley Saunders and Alex Friston, we are delighted to be joined by a variety of speakers, each bringing something different to the table in relation to impacts, views and then thoughts towards the Public Inquiry, which is set to commence its first public hearings on 13 June. 

In our first episode, Hayley Saunders welcomes Simon Toseland to discuss his experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic and what this meant for his role as Head of Health, Safety and Fire at Birmingham Airport and the travel industry generally. From media sensationalism regarding queues to getting everything back on track, Simon talks us through his thoughts and reflects on lessons learned.



Shoosmiths continues to be committed to supporting its clients through the ongoing and unprecedented challenges presented by the pandemic and its aftermath. For any additional information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either Hayley or Alex.
