Northampton Town fans who've been through so many ups and downs this season are celebrating their success.The club were crowned champions of League Two last Saturday.
Earlier in the season, the club came close to extinction having run into financial problems. This is a thank you to the fans from BBC Radio Northampton.
A proposal to build a 12-screen cinema, 10 pin bowling alley and more restaurants at Rushden Lakes is expected to be granted planning permission this evening.
Construction of the £140m shopping and leisure centre has already begun with the first shops expected to open in spring 2017.
The cinema replaces a garden centre which featured in the original plans. There would also be a climbing structure and cycle hire.
East Northamptonshire Council's Planning Management Committee will consider the changes at a meeting starting at 19:00.
The UK business minister has welcomed the prospect of a management buy-out for Tata Steel's UK businesses.
More than 500 people are employed at Tata's Corby tube works.
UK Business Minister Anna Soubry said keeping the blast furnaces at Port Talbot open was going to be difficult but "that's really what should be at the very heart of any future for Tata Steel in the UK".
A Northampton councillor has defended the practise of giving elected members free car parking passes.
Conservative councillor Tim Hadland was responding to calls from a Kettering Borough councillor to ban free passes in Kettering. Labour's Clark Mitchell says that some councillors don't realise the true cost of parking.
Mr Hadland said: "The fact that we have free parking means we don't claim travel expenses which we would otherwise do."
Plans to reduce the environmental standards of new homes at a big housing development near Kettering have been been criticised as "a disadvantage" to those living there.
Hanwood Park - better known as Kettering East - has outline planning permission for 5,500 homes which was granted six years ago. So far no homes have been built.
The homes were due to be 'zero carbon' but the developer is now proposing a lower standard.
Martin Field, senior researcher at the University of Northampton's Collaborative Centre for the Built Environment, says we're being left behind by other countries: "We should be aspiring to do what other countries, like Germany, are doing by building properties that can maximise all the energy and utility efficiencies we know we can do."
Kettering and Bedford councils are objecting to plans for a cinema and bowling alley at Rushden Lakes.
There are fears that the £140m retail and leisure complex will be so big it could poach shoppers from towns as far afield as Kettering, Corby, Northampton and Bedford.
But East Northamptonshire Council's planning officers say the addition of a 12-screen cinema, bowling alley, climbing structure and restaurants will create jobs and "increase the self-sufficiency" of the area.
EastEnders and Holby City star Petra Letang is excited about appearing at the Royal & Derngate for a new play.
A body representing councils in Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire has agreed to support efforts to secure the future of Corby's steel industry.
The Joint Delivery Committee for North Northamptonshire met last night in Corby's council chamber.
The leader of Corby Borough Council, Tom Beattie, said: "We should be seen to support our local industries when procuring the material, including steel needed to build our future communities."
Avon Cosmetics staff at Northampton and Corby have been told that 70 job losses are due to a global restructuring "to improve effectiveness and reduce cost".
A 30-day consultation period has begun.
A statement sent to employees says: "It's been a challenging period, with much sadness."

Avon Cosmetics, which has its headquarters in Northampton, has confirmed that 70 jobs are to go at its sites in the town and in Corby.
The company says the job losses are part of a restructuring to save money.
Avon had recently announced it was moving its global headquarters from the USA to the UK after selling its North American business. This would mean the loss of 2,500 positions worldwide.
Adjoa Andoh, best known as Colette from the BBC's Casualty, is to appear in the Royal & Derngate's world premiere of Soul.
The play, by Roy Williams, is about soul legend Marvin Gaye.
Also in the casting, announced today, is Petra Letang from EastEnders and Holby City. The play will be on the Royal Theatre stage from 20 May.
Clark Mitchell, a Kettering borough councillor, says he and other councillors shouldn't have free parking.
The Labour member has tabled a motion at tonight's full council meeting calling for the passes to be removed.
He says the elected representatives are already given an allowance to pay for things like parking: "We all put ourselves in a position to do this, supposedly to support the community and support the people of Kettering."
Police say they're "growing concerned" for missing man Martin Roberts who's not been seen since leaving Northampton General Hospital this morning.
The 45-year-old was last seen at about 06:00 when he was leaving the hospital, walking in the direction of Cheyne Walk. He was wearing a white top with a green, sleeveless jacket.
Mr Roberts comes from Daventry and drives a silver VW Polo.

The latest news for Northamptonshire:
Northants Herald & Post
As a Kettering councillor calls for free car parking to be removed from borough councillors, we've been looking at parking charges around Northamptonshire.
Most towns have free parking but Northampton, Kettering and Corby make charges. In Northampton the charges apply after two hours.
If you're parking for two to three hours, Kettering is the most expensive town.
On Sundays, all our towns have free parking.
In the world of local sport:
There will be an attempt tonight to remove free car parking passes from Kettering Borough councillors.
The passes are for use when on council business but Labour councillor Clark Mitchell, who's proposing the motion, says it means some councillors don't know the true cost of parking in the town.
Councillors would still be able to claim back the parking charges through their expenses.
The company behind one of Northamptonshire's biggest new housing developments is trying to reduce the environmental standards of the new properties.
Hanwood Park, better known as Kettering East, is set to have 5,500 homes. They were due to be "zero carbon", but the new proposal is to build them at a lower standard.
We'll have more on this throughout the day.
