  12. Road remains closed after digger crash near QMC

    BBC Radio Nottingham

    A stretch of the Nottingham ring road is still closed this evening - after a lorry carrying a digger hit a bridge near the Queen's Medical Centre.

    The bridge carrying the A52 has been declared safe but it'll take engineers some time yet to repair the road below.

    Dave Liversidge, from Nottingham City Council, said: "We're hoping by tomorrow morning it'll be open because they'll be working hard on resurfacing the bit that the lorry's ploughed into.

    "Once that's done we can reopen it. How long that takes depends on how bad the problem really is."

    Bridge crash

    Total Reclaims Demolition, which owns the lorry involved in the crash, said in a statement: "The demolition rig had been travelling between two of our sites in Nottingham where we are currently carrying out demolition works, when the arm struck the bridge, causing it to dismount the lorry.

    "Thankfully no injuries have been reported, and we are now in the process of cleaning up the debris left behind.

    "Our own teams are on site working as quickly as they can to minimise the disruption to other road users, and we are helping both the police and Highways Agency with their enquiries.

  13. Hundreds demand road safety improvements at school

    Amy Orton

    Local Democracy Reporter

    More than 500 people have signed a petition asking Leicestershire County Council to "urgently address" road safety concerns outside Moira Primary School.

    Parents, residents and members of the community have backed the school's appeal for a review into safety measures outside the Blackfordby Lane school as a result of parents parking outside and a change in speed limits on the road approaching the school.

    The petition states: "The school and the local community are working together to reduce the likelihood of accident or injury to our pupils, parents or local residents.

    "As a matter of urgency we feel that the council should carefully analyse and audit the current risks and consider making the appropriate adjustments to minimise these."

    Moira Primary School

    After receiving the petition, Blake Pain, the county council's lead member for environment and transport, said: "It's not an uncommon problem and we'd like to do more.

    "We will hopefully, by the autumn, have mandatory zig zag lines outside of schools and an enforcement car that will work at schools outside the county."

    An area around Huntingdon Road was cordoned off for several hours after the item was discovered at about 08:30.

    Leicestershire Police said a 22-year-old man from Leicester was detained this afternoon.

  15. Judge rules stalker sent 'very nasty' tweets to Lampards

    BBC News

    A man who pleaded guilty to stalking TV presenter Christine Lampard - the wife of Derby County manager Frank Lampard - faces jail after sending her "very nasty" tweets, a judge has said.

    Christof King, 39, of Mowbray Road, Brent, pleaded guilty to stalking last week, but denied sending the threatening tweets - which Mr Lampard had been tagged in.

    King, who wanted career advice, also sent letters and turned up at the couple's home on more than one occasion, causing her to hide in a bedroom with the housekeeper.

    Frank and Christine Lampard

    He had denied owning the account the tweets were sent from but this was dismissed by the judge following a Newton hearing at Isleworth Crown Court.

    Judge Robin Johnson said: "There is clear evidence that he has delusional tendencies. In my judgment I accept that Mrs Lampard is truthful and accurate.

    "He is clearly someone who swings in mood during the course of a letter for instance. I don't rule out a sentence of imprisonment."

    King was bailed until sentencing on 27 July.
