Collect of Roxann Cuthbertson as Ian, from South Molton, Devon, who is Britain's first transgender truck driver, before she became a woman. See SWNS story SWTRUCK; A LORRY driver left workmates stunned when he revealed he wanted to live the rest of his life as woman. But Roxann Cuthbertson - known to trucker pals as Ian for years - was left shedding tears of joy when work-pals showed their total support. Roxy said: “The reaction when I first went to work as Roxy was ‘what the hell is going on’. “I sat down, talked to them and they told me ‘whatever makes you happy’. It took them a while to get to calling me Roxy, but now they do and it’s great.” Roxann, who has been driving HGVs for 40 years, built up the courage to reveal her gender transition after living a double life for decades. Now Roxy - who has also worked as an apprentice mechanic and a doorman - said her workmates even defend her while out on jobs.
