Alton Towers will be making 70 staff redundant following a review of the business in the aftermath of The Smiler rollercoaster crash. 

The theme park employs 800 full-time staff and 1,500 seasonal workers.

BBC Local Live

People in Holbrook village want to save The Spotted Cow to ensure it becomes part of the community again, as it has been unoccupied for two years.

But developer Ian McNair said if he doesn't get planning permission he'll appeal against the decision.

He said: "If the local community wanted to buy it they would probably have to raise £500,000, plus £250,000 to refurbish it. 

"These figures I do not believe are achievable."

There were no witnesses to the accident, but PC Lacey said he believed that when Mr Mould ran to the back of the car, he either tripped or was knocked by the moving vehicle.

He was then trapped underneath and dragged for about four metres. He died from the effects of a crushed chest.

In a statement, Craig Webb said he walked to the back of the car and saw blood coming out of the 54-year-old's head. He said tried to help but couldn't because of the position of the vehicle.

A coroner has recorded a verdict of accidental death after a man from Ilkeston was crushed by his own car. 

Derby Coroner's Court heard Paul Mould, 54, died on 1 July after only partially applying the handbrake on his Ford Focus.

Initially there was some uncertainty about whether the fragments were human or animal, but police have now confirmed they're from a person.

Police aren't sure how old the bones are, so they'll now be carbon dated.
