    Good morning and welcome to another week of regular live updates of news, sport, weather, travel and more.

    This morning, Tomasz Kroker, the driver of a lorry who caused a crash which killed a mother and three children from Dunstable, is due to be sentenced. We'll bring you the latest as it happens.

    Today we'll also look at how much Central Bedfordshire Council has spent on dealing with illegal traveller encampments.

    But first, let's see what the weather has in store with a full forecast. The fog is rather apt for Halloween, isn't it?

    Talking of Halloween, soon we'll recap Greg Rutherford's spooky performance in Strictly at the weekend too.
