    I've been telling you a lot about East Midlands Airport this morning, so I thought I'd share with you my last experience there. 

    Having gone to pick up relatives from a week-long holiday, I ended up getting stuck in the short stay car park and had to get into a lengthy discussion with the man on the intercom about how I had actually paid for my ticket. 

    It was entirely my fault having failed to read the small print. Who does?

    It's one of many trees forming an exhibition at the Adult Education Centre on Belvoir Street in the city. 

    If you close closely, you may even spot Rupal Rajani on a bauble. No prizes for the winners though I'm afraid.

    BBC Local Live

    I thought it would be interesting to share with you what the law says about women being able to breastfeed in public places. 

    Breastfeeding

    The Equality Act 2010 has specifically clarified that it is unlawful for a business to discriminate against a woman because she is breastfeeding a child. 

    Businesses have a responsibility to ensure that a woman breastfeeding while receiving a service they provide is not treated unfairly, including by other customers.
