    This is no toy ... it's called a Unimog and it's one of the specialist vehicles used by Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service to tackle moorland fires where ground conditions can be challenging.

    I'm not sure I've ever seen Fireman Sam in one of these but it could prove useful for dealing with this afternoon's moorland fire near Ladybower Reservoir.

    I’ve been looking at which newly-elected Derby city councillors enjoy the biggest mandate ... in other words, how many registered voters in the ward chose the winning candidate.

    If you factor in turnout, some councillors received relatively low levels of support from their local adult population.

    Telescopes were being set up at Alvaston Park in Derby to capture the moment. Nice way to get a sun tan.
