MP opens new car repair centre for school friends

A PAIR of savvy Weston men are the driving force behind a new car repair garage in the town.

Alex Browne, aged 25, and pal Lee Firth, aged 24, have opened LA Autos in Langford Road.

Weston’s MP and Tourism Minister, John Penrose, officially opened the new business at a special ceremony last week.

Alex, who has a full NVQ three in motor mechanics, has been fully qualified for nine years including his apprenticeship and has also taught NVQ one at a pupil referral unit in Bridgwater.

Both Alex and Lee attended Worle Community School and Lee will be running the office side of the business.

LA Autos does all types of repairs, tyre fitting and puncture repair and also has a vehicle diagnostic machine which can be used at the garage or remotely.
