Sodexho races to feed Tube rescue workers

Staff at contract caterer Sodexho worked through the night last week to provide food and drink to London Underground staff in the aftermath of the terrorist bombings.

Sodexho, which caters at London Underground's headquarters and several depots, was asked at 8pm on Friday to provide 36,000 pieces of fruit, 18,000 packets of biscuits, 21,600 cans of soft drinks and 25,000 cakes to 320 locations by Saturday morning.

After a speedy delivery from supplier Brakes to Sodexho's factory in Wales, 40 staff came in to get the job done, giving up their days off.

Deliveries were on the way by 10am the next morning.
