    The private company which will take over the running of five council-owned leisure centres in the Erewash borough has been revealed.

    The Local Democracy Reporting Service reports Worcester-based Parkwood Leisure Ltd is taking on Long Eaton's West Park Leisure Centre, Sandiacre Friesland Sports Centre, and Ilkeston's Victoria Park Leisure Centre.

    The firm currently runs 87 centres across the UK and has partnered up with 25 local authorities, including Rushcliffe Borough Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.

    The 10-year contract, which will come into force in the new year, is expected to save the borough council up to £6m.

    Nottingham University has pledged to pay registration fees for all 800 of their EU staff should they wish to apply for settlement post-Brexit.

    EU citizens without indefinite right to remain or permanent residence will have to pay a fee if they wish to remain in the United Kingdom after 2020, which the university has offered to pay for staff and their families if they apply.

    Professor Shearer West, vice chancellor of Nottingham University said: "The University will pay the registration fee for all European staff and their families should they wish to apply for settled status under the scheme and I have therefore asked budget holders in the University to make the savings necessary to ensure that we can do this."
