SCP storyline unravels on Corrie
Fans of Coronation Street will have noticed a School Crossing Patrol (SCP) storyline evolving on the show recently - and eagle eyed viewers ‘in the know’ about these things may also have spotted the identity of the uniform provider.
The gist of the plot is that character Dennis Tanner has to find a job to pay back Rita, but when he takes on the role of SCP his problems continue to grow – despite his best efforts to remain unrecognised.
Viewers with an eye for all things road safety may have noticed that the uniform Dennis wears for the storyline has been provided by none other than Keltic Clothing, sponsors of this newsfeed. Keltic is a family business owned and run by father and son team John and David Barry.
David said: “After discussing the options with the head costume designer for the soap, they decided on using our yellow winter jacket, mountain hat and formal peaked hat and a pair of our high vision gloves. Keep watching as the story unfolds.”
PS: a big ‘thank you’ from Road Safety GB to Keltic Clothing for your generous support throughout 2012!
