    The former Intu Derby shopping centre has confirmed it's changed its name and will now be known as Derbion.

    Its owners said the name is "reflecting pride in the city and its future potential", with general manager Adam Tamsett adding he is "really excited" to unveil the name after "months of customer engagement".

    The name change comes after the centre's previous owners fell into administration last year.

    A bus that was stuck "for hours" at a junction on a snowy hill was rescued with the help of locals with shovels.

    A number 2 bus got stuck on its way through Melbourne, in Derbyshire, at about 15:00 on Sunday, according to Arriva.

    The depot sent for recovery but this was "severely delayed" and so Derbyshire County Council staff and some passers-by stepped in to help dig it out.

    Stuck bus

    One eyewitness said they saw the "very relieved" driver thanking the helpers after being freed at about 19:30 - four-and-a-half hours after first getting into trouble.

    "The driver jumped back in, the guys pushed and the driver drove very slowly up on to the main road," the witness said.

    Simon Mathieson, from Arriva, said: "I would like to thank everyone involved in helping getting the bus moving again in what were very difficult conditions."

    Freed bus

    Disruption remains across the bus network in the East Midlands today after freezing overnight temperatures.

    Trent Barton, Arriva, Nottingham City Transport and Kinchbus have all reported delayed or cancelled services due to the poor weather conditions.
