However, hours later Simon revealed his pass had been cancelled before he left the building causing him to seek help.

One wrote: ‘I am so sorry it has come to this. The appalling way you (& many others) have been treated beggars belief.’

Another said: ‘This is a very sad day. I began to listen to you when I was a toolsetter. 25 years later, I look after children with complex needs. Take care and thanks for the good times.’
