A few days ago someone asked for ideas for football related quiz questions and I suggested questions in the form of cryptic crossword clues. So I thought I'd give it a go. Here are ten which I think are not too taxing (but I know the answers!)

I am in the Port of Felixstowe in their holding area, waiting to go forward and lift on my container for Monday.
About 20 metres away is a glass sided phone booth. The phone within is a direct line to 'Customer Support' and is there to resolve drivers' queries.
I have just watched as one driver was using the phone and two others queueing at a safe distance from each other. Then as each driver finished his call the next one stepped forward and, without hesitation, raised the phone to his mouth.
If the first were carrying the virus then, in all likelihood, the others will soon be showing symptoms.
