EU rules stop Ripley rockets

BBC Local Live

An Armistice Day tradition in Ripley has been stopped this year because of a new piece of EU legislation.

Maroon rockets are usually set off to mark the start and end of the two-minute silence. 

Amber Valley Borough Council purchases them and says new EU health and safety laws mean special training requirements are needed to light the rockets.

The council is now working on ways to get them back for next year. 

Hundreds of police assaulted

BBC Local Live

New figures have revealed 300 police officers were assaulted in Derbyshire last year.

The stats, released following a Freedom of Information request by the BBC, showed 689 assaults were recorded in the East Midlands from 2015 to 2016.

The Police Federation, which represents local officers, is now calling for a review of sentencing guidelines.

Out with the old, in with the new. Derbyshire Police officers are getting Android devices so they'll have easy access to key software away from the station.

Assistant Chief Constable Chris Haward said: “The new mobile devices will become an integral part of policing in Derbyshire. 

"People will soon get used to seeing officers with them rather than the familiar pocket notebooks."

As I told you yesterday, Derby's Cathedral Quarter has made it to the final three for having the Best High Street in the UK.

The competition will see the winning city receive £10,000.

Norwich and Bristol are also finalists, but I have faith that the best city will win and of course that's Derby.

Fingers crossed.

Paul Burton, whose home was badly damaged, said he was: "...absolutely devastated, angry, confused, emotional, because we don't know who or why it was done.
