    Quote Message: This award is fantastic recognition for the role our nature and landscapes play in helping to keep the South West a beautiful place with a thriving tourism economy. The huge value of nature is often overlooked as these landscapes are ‘free to enter’, yet they are so often the reasons why people choose to visit, live and work here, so are major drivers in the economy. from Sam Rose Chief executive, Jurassic Coast Trust

    England legend Peter Shilton said he has been invited to meet Diego Maradona - and he wants the public's help with his "biggest debate to date".

  14. Eddie Howe: 'Confidence returns' to Bournemouth

    BBC Sport

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been talking about the prospect of facing Stoke in the Premier League this weekend.

    "Stoke have changed their system and mentality slightly and the signs look good for them after their opening two games under Paul Lambert.

    "They have a very good squad and they will be very difficult to beat.

    "I think the bottom of the table was very tight last year, but there seems a whole host of clubs down there this year.

    "We've been in really good form. Confidence has returned to the group. The manner of the performances against Arsenal and Chelsea was very strong.

    "Either way, if you win, lose and draw, you'll always have another game to prove yourself.

    "The real high is in the changing room after the game when you can celebrate what has been achieved in the last 90 minutes."
