We may be only 13 weeks old but there was a clear winner for our most viewed story of 2019.

It was none other than Paul Collins – known to many as ‘Mr Jaguar’ – who roared off into retirement in October after a distinguished 51 years in the motor trade.

At the time Paul, who continues to play a prominent role in the business community including BH Live and Dorset Chamber, described the reaction to our story as “totally overwhelming.”

He added: “There have been calls, messages and texts from all over the country and people have been liking and sharing the article. I’ve never known anything like it.

“People from Jaguar head office have told me they’ve been watching the response and been absolutely amazed by the reaction. I’m just so grateful.”
