  4. You never know when you're being recorded

    Former Rushcliffe MP Ken Clarke has been recorded calling Home Secretary Theresa May a "bloody difficult woman" and calling the Tory leadership contest a "fiasco",

    He's made the remarks as he prepared for an interview with Sky News - but doesn't appear to realise the camera was rolling.

    Nottingham City Council says it's the driver of the van who will pay the £70 parking fine, which is reduced to £35 if paid within 14 days.

    A spokeswoman said: " All our drivers are expected to comply with parking regulations and are not exempt from fixed penalty notices if council vehicles are parked where restrictions are in force."

    Trent Street

    Parking bays along Trent Street have been suspended while work takes place at the junction with Station Street.

    A city council spokeswoman confirmed it was one of the authority's vans that was handed a ticket yesterday afternoon.

    She said although the authority's van was parked in a marked bay, the 'No Stopping' signs were currently in force along Trent Street and Station Street because of roadworks.

    So it's pretty likely the other vehicles you can see parked on the street were also handed tickets.

    A teacher who is on strike today told BBC East Midlands Today she was taking action because funding for schools is being cut and class sizes are getting bigger.
