I have also read that there are large amount of Virgin Atlantic staff that fly MAN to LHR/LGW. On airline application forms it says that you must live an hour from your base airport and have own transport. How come some crew can fly to their base airport and work. Many thanks for any feedback.

With most US airlines, you are classified a "Reserve" for several years before you get to "Hold a line". As a reserve you have to be ready to fly when you are on Call. Thus it is preferrable that you live close to your base.
