Some bright or sunny spells but also a few showers, especially this afternoon when they'll be more frequent with the risk of a few heavier, thundery downpours.

Breezy and cool with highs of 18C (64F).

People attending events at Derby's new velodrome may have no choice but to park in the city centre.

Derby County are through to the second round of the Capital One Cup after beating Carlisle United 2-0.

Chris Doidge, BBC Radio Derby political reporter

The council's updated velodrome travel plan represents something of a u-turn as it admits it's not actually possible to prevent clashes at the iPro Stadium and the velodrome.

Ian Skye, Presenter, BBC Radio Derby

A 70-year-old Ripley woman with cerebral palsy is to lose her council funding for two personal assistants because she has more than £50,000 worth of investments.
