  9. Watford could play Tottenham at Stadium MK

    Watford have been drawn away to Tottenham in the third round of the Carabao Cup (League Cup) in a game which could be played almost 50 miles away from Wembley at MK Dons' Stadium MK.

    Satdium MK

    The national stadium, where Spurs are playing home games while their new ground is built in north London, is unavailable during third round week.

    "As a result of both our new stadium and Wembley being unavailable, we have applied to the EFL board for special dispensation to play this tie at Stadium MK," Spurs said in a statement.

    "We appreciate that Stadium MK may not be an ideal destination for every fan to get to on a weekday evening, however the club felt it would not be beneficial to request a reverse of the fixture as it would have resulted in no more than a 10% allocation of tickets for our supporters at the venue of our opponents."

    Signature Flatbreads exports to 30 countries worldwide.

    Chief secretary to the treasury, Liz Truss, said that businesses in the region would be able to boost trade opportunities once the UK had left the European Union and exports were "the key to our economic success".

    The company said 60% of its Dunstable workforce were from the EU and it was uncertain what would happen to them after Brexit.

    Chief executive officer, William Eid, said: "You could say 60% of our assets are at risk - we want our people very well taken care of and the signs are they will be."

    "10% of our business is reliant on trade with Europe and that's not insignificant... our approach is to say to the government that change should be gradual and we should eliminate surprises."
