    A decision to close a Northamptonshire primary school that only has three pupils is to be reviewed.

    Northamptonshire County Council had said it wasn't viable to keep Great Creaton Primary School open with so few pupils.

    However, parents said the numbers only fell severely after a consultation on closure was started.

    The authority's decision has been called in by opposition councillors and will now be looked at again.

    It is not clear if this process could affect the planned closure date of December.

  6. Land agreement reached for new Kettering Town stadium

    Kettering Town Football Club could return to the town and be playing at a new stadium within four to six years, its chairman has said.

    The board announced an "agreement had been reached" to buy land behind houses off Scott Road, near Weekley Glebe, for the building of a new ground.

    The Poppies have been playing at Latimer Park in Burton Latimer for the past five years, and their long-term former ground at Rockingham Road was demolished last year.

    Scott Road, Kettering.

    Chairman David Mahoney said: "We haven't set a timeline yet but, realistically, we're looking at four, five, six years maybe, as we've got to get the plans through and the infrastructure built.

    "But the response from the fans at a fans' forum was very positive. I've not heard any negative comments yet."
