l Clarification: The report originally stated that MP for Boston and Skegness Matt Warman opened this event. However, Mr Warman’s office have since confirmed that although he was due to do so, he was called away to another meeting at the last moment and instead attended at the jobs fair later that morning. The Standard is happy to clarify this point.
