    There'll be a few showers in the early evening which could be wintry and it'll be a cold night with some scattered cloud and clearer spells at times.


    There'll be a widespread frost and icy patches on untreated roads.

    Lows of 0C (32F) or possibly cooler in rural areas.

    Another day, another chance for David Vaughan to make the news at Nottingham Forest.

    For three days it was nothing but red cards, appeals and the subsequent three-match ban for the 32-year-old.

    Today, however, Forest boss Dougie Freeman has spoken about the player's future, saying Vaughan is likely to be at club next season - either by signing a new deal, or by triggering an extension.

    Bit of good news at the end of a long week for the midfielder. Oh, and of course, he now has the weekend off.

    Now here's the latest from the triple murder trial at Nottingham Crown Court.

    A teenager who escaped a house fire in Langley Mill has told how he tried to crawl back through thick smoke to help 17-year-old Amy Smith and her six-month-old daughter who died in the blaze.

    Josh Holt explained how she'd fallen as they rushed up the stairs to escape, after smoke poured in through the front door.

    He said he heard "a scream - a sound I can't describe" and felt her hand let go of his hip, as she followed him up the stairs.  

    Peter, Simon and Anthony Eyre are alleged to have started the fire which killed three people in June. They all deny the charges. The trial continues.

  5. Camps 'put pressure on council'

    FightBack - a Nottingham-based group with links to Anonymous who are looking after the tents - today began clearing the Cliff Road site.

    It's after magistrates said there could be a "serious risk of nuisance to the public" if the camp stayed open and granted a three-month closure order.

    The group said the camp, as well as an earlier one on Station Street, had put pressure on the city council and helped house about 20 rough sleepers.  

  6. Travel: More A46 woes

    BBC Travel

    Power cables have fallen on the A46 in Elston, partially blocking the road in both directions.

    The road is still closed a few miles further north between Newark and Farndon after a serious accident.

    There are also delays at the A1 junction where a lorry caught fire earlier.

    Boots is marking the 80th anniversary of its iconic make-up brand No 7 with an exhibition at Nottingham's Lakeside Arts Centre. 

    It charts the beginnings of the make-up range from the 1930s up to the present day.

  9. Controversial gravel plans approved

    Plans to look at potential new gravel quarry sites are not likely to go down well with Notts folk.


    County councillors approved their Minerals Local Plan, a blueprint for quarrying in the county until 2030, last night.

    Five new sand and gravel sites, including Barnby Moor, Botany Bay, Coddington, Flash Farm and Shelford, have been proposed.

    Land near Barton-in-Fabis, earmarked for gravel extraction, has been described as a "wonderful green lung" that will be "trashed" if plans go ahead.

    This is one of two accidents causing major delays in the area.

    The A46 has been shut in both directions between Newark and Farndon because of a serious accident.
