A bomb disposal expert has taken the latest step in his varied career at a metal railings and gates manufacturer.

Billy Mayes, a former bomb disposal engineer in the British Army, has joined Alpha Rail as a site operative.

Billy left the Army in 2006, then retrained to work in the charity sector supporting the homeless and those with addiction issues. He boasts a BSc Explosives from Cambridge University, a post graduate Certificate in Drug Treatment from Nottingham University, and an MSc Youth Development from Surrey University among his qualifications.

He said: “I have always enjoyed new challenges and the role at Alpha Rail will enable me to combine all my transferable skills for the benefit of Alpha Rail and its customers.”

Mayes lives in Warsop and in his spare time enjoys boxing, mixed martial arts and playing computer games with his two sons aged 10 and four.
