    Just last month McClaren told BBC Sport he still had hopes of being a manager and said: "I still have a few years left in me yet on the field."

    He said he had recently begun studying towards a Masters degree in Sporting Directorship at Manchester Metropolitan University with the hope of one day running his own football club.

    BBC Local Live

    Maling had inflicted injuries on Ms Gough over a number of years, some serious, leading to her needing medical treatment on many occasions.

    Attorney General, Jeremy Wright QC MP, referred Maling’s sentence to the Court of Appeal as unduly lenient.

    Amy gough

    After today's hearing at the Court of Appeal, he said: "This was one of many violent attacks the offender inflicted on the deceased over a number of years, and this attack lasted several days. 

    “I hope this increased sentence gives some comfort to Ms Gough’s family at this difficult time.”

    We told you earlier about county council plans to use white vans instead of painting them orange which it hopes will save nearly half a million pounds over the next eight years.

    The authority says its 44 gritting and emergency response vehicles will stay orange though for visibility reasons.

    Dave Wade

    BBC Local Live

    A man who killed his girlfriend, who he regularly beat, has had his sentence extended to 15 years.

    Andrew Maling, 47, was sentenced to 10 years in June for the manslaughter of Amy Gough in Sandiacre.

    Andrew Maling

    The 34-year-old died when she arrived at hospital in May 2015 after a long weekend of beatings from Maling.

    Post-mortem examinations revealed there were three litres of blood in her abdomen.

  17. McClaren U-turn a 'shock'

    Owen Bradley

    BBC Radio Derby Sport

    Shocked is an understatement considering the nature of Steve McClaren's departure.

    Though he was ultimately sacked, McClaren damaged lots of relationships at the club by never bringing to an end the links with Newcastle. In the eyes of some, that derailed Derby's promotion campaign.

    Mel Morris is a big fan of McClaren's quality as a coach, but was part of the group that sacked him. If that relationship has been repaired then it will happen.

  18. Rams fans divided on McClaren return

    Owen Bradley

    BBC Radio Derby Sport

    Based on what I've seen so far, I'd say the Derby County fan base is split on Steve McClaren's potential return.

    That said, the fans were also split on his departure, and Paul Clement's appointment, and Nigel Pearson's!
