Derbyshire County Council has set out how it intends to cut £34m from its budget in the coming financial year. 

Adult social care faces a cut just short of £7m, with children's services to be cut by more than £6m. 

The council said it's facing severe funding cuts from the government, while the Tory opposition has said the authority could cancel the majority of this year's cuts by taking money from reserves.

Two branches around Derbyshire - in Alfreton and Castle Donington - will also close. 

The company has blamed the closures partly on the growth of mobile and internet banking.

The move is expected to lead to 180 redundancies.

The agency S&P (Standard and Poor's) has downgraded Derby-based Rolls Royce's credit rating.

Last week it was announced the aero-engine maker would have to pay more than £670m to settle bribery and corruption cases. 

The agency now rates Rolls-Royce as triple B plus, rather than A minus, but said the company's outlook was stable.

After two men were convicted yesterday for conning and threatening workers who went to work at Sports Direct, Erewash MP Maggie Throup said: "I think it can make more people aware that modern slavery is happening.

Vet Janice Dixon, from Help for Horses, said more enforcement of the law will provide greater "tractability" of owners.

"For instance, the four horses that we've had dumped in the gateways in Derbyshire and the three in Little Eaton," she said.

"If they are microchipped then you can scan them... the number starts the paper trail of where that horse comes from."
