Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

BERNARD HOWARD (pictured), the driving force behind haulage firm PC Howard, has died aged 75.

Howard’s father Percy diversified from farming into haulage in 1939 when the Air Ministry claimed half of his land for use as an air field during the Second World War. Bernard joined the family business in the 1960s, working alongside younger brother Bill and twin brother Roy. Initially driving one of the trucks, it wasn’t long before Bernard began planning the deliveries and moved into the office.

In the mid-70s PC Howard started work for British Steel, by which time Bernard was already running the business. Bernard was a strong advocate for the industry, serving on the Road Haulage Association regional council and also as a main board director. He became famous for berating prime minister Gordon Brown in 2007 over the high cost of fuel during a business leaders summit.

The funeral is expected to take place on 17 November at 11am in Kings Cliffe, Northamptonshire, but is subject to change. If planning to attend, please check details with PC Howard on 01780 444 444.
