I've just had clarification from Notts Police that the southbound side is open but it'll take a while for the traffic to clear.

Although with traffic being less busy at this time of night hopefully that shouldn't take too long.

Chris Martin will not play against Rams

BBC Derby Sport

Steve McClaren has admitted he's relieved that Derby County won't have to face striker Chris Martin when they travel to Fulham in the Championship tomorrow.

Martin is on a season-long loan at Craven Cottage from Derby, where he was top-scorer for the last three years, bagging 61 goals overall. 

He's already got six for Fulham this season but can't play against McClaren's team due to the terms of his loan deal.

People living in Youlgreave village have all clumped together to create a marvellous bake - not just an ordinary bake, a replica of their village (not to eat though, unfortunately).

It was to help raise money for the church roof by selling off each cake model. They need £250,000 to mend the roof.

Last night they raised around £3,000.

But Derby City Post Office and Matlock Post Office will be closed if staff decide to strike.
