    The council says the proposals include replacing the "current outdated 1930s and 1980s buildings" with a new hotel and nine shops.

    Just a fortnight after the two sides met in the first leg of the Championship Grand Final, Ipswich Witches are back at Sheffield Tigers tonight.

    Ritchie Hawkins

    This time it's the first leg of their Knockout Cup semi-final, with the return at Foxhall tomorrow.

    The Suffolk side has drafted in Ben Barker as a guest, to cover for the injured Rory Schlein, while Connor Mountain returns from his shoulder problem.

    "We have got to go with the same philosophy that we have had all year and we will go and try to perform to the best of our ability," boss Ritchie Hawkins told the club website.

    "We need to cut out the mistakes we made in both legs of the [Championship Grand] final if we are going to make the cup final.

    "I have confidence in the team that we can go and win the cup. We will go there looking to do the job and progress.”

  13. Fracking company in £100,000 donation

    Sign

    Third Energy is close to starting fracking at a well in Ryedale.

    Energy companies agreed that they'd pay the money into a community fund for each well they wanted to frack whether or not they found any gas.

    The fund is due to benefit groups in the Kirby Misperton area and the villages of Great and Little Habton and Great and Little Barugh.

    A panel will be set up to advise on how the money should be distributed.

  15. HMP Doncaster sex offender rise 'to reduce violence'

    Hundreds of alleged or convicted sex offenders have been placed in a prison to tackle high levels of violence, a report has found.

    HMP Doncaster

    The Prison Officers Association said increasing the number of sex offenders in jails could help reduce violence because they largely had a less volatile temperament towards staff and other inmates compared to prisoners with non-sexual offences.

    At the time of the inspection in July the number of men on remand for, or convicted of sex offences had trebled to just over 300.

    The chief inspector of prisons, Peter Clarke, said this increase meant "in effect, this large cohort of men was being denied the opportunity to make progress".
