    Matthew Meaden from Salmon Harvester, the team behind the project, says when they bought the site in 2013 it was just 50% full - as it stands only one unit is left.

  12. We remember: A city remembers the Falklands

    Nicola Goodwin

    Reporter, BBC Hereford & Worcester

    Twenty seven men from Herefordshire died in the Falklands War, more than 10% of the British casualties - including Craig Jones, who was killed just a day before the ceasefire.

    Hereford is a garrison city and most people have connections with the armed forces. There are memorial benches around the city providing a permanent link between Hereford and Stanley.

    Five years ago I was privileged to be able to visit the islands with Craig's father Richard, brother Gareth and nephew Alexander Jones.

    We were on Craig Island as it was dedicated in his memory.

    He died in the battle on Mount Longdon in 1982

    The short time that I spent in the islands changed my life and it’s an experience that I will never forget.

    Time may have passed, but the memories of being invaded are still very raw for the people who live there, 8,000 miles away from the British mainland, and for the men and women who took part in the conflict and their families.

    Tomorrow hundreds of people will gather at Hereford Cathedral to remember.

  13. Dog training courses offered to stop attacks on livestock

    Subsidised dog training courses are being offered by the charity looking after the Malvern Hills to cut the number of attacks on livestock.

    A ewe and a lamb were killed in separate dog attacks earlier in the month.

    Malvern Hills Trust is warning that livestock worrying, which includes chasing, is a criminal offence and could lead to the destruction of the dog.

    Grazing on Malvern Hills

    Livestock are grazed on the hills to control the growth of shrubs and trees.

    The fee is subsidised by the trust and costs £30 if participants attend all six classes, which start on the 4 June and run between 14:00 and 16:00.
