We fulfilled as many orders as we could before our building closed to staff. We paused some outstanding requests and notified those customers. All new orders will be placed on hold until further notice. 
Enforced home-working has enabled us to increase our cataloguing efforts. During April, our team catalogued over 36,000 aerial images. We are now working to make these available on our website.
