    Det Insp Pete Quinn from Nottinghamshire Police said Gail Wright's case was "unusual" in that the perpetrator was a woman.

    He said: "This goes to show that although the overwhelming majority of sexual exploitation cases brought to the attention of police are perpetrated by men against girls, we cannot be complacent about the fact that it can happen to anyone, anywhere."

    A woman who groomed five boys and sent them naked photos and sexual videos of herself through Facebook has been jailed for two years.

    Gail Wright, 44, also had a sexual relationship with one of the boys, who were aged 14 and 15 when they met her in 2015.

    Wright, from Shireoaks, was eventually caught when the father of one of the boys saw the photos on his phone.

    She later admitted seven offences at Nottingham Crown Court.

    Some locals have been telling BBC East Midlands Today they don't support the proposed plans at Thoresby Colliery as they doubt there's enough infrastructure or resources to support the extra people.

    As part of the plans, some of the old spoil tip would also be reclaimed in a large country park.

    BBC News Online

    Nottingham hasn't had an attraction dedicated to Robin Hood since the Tales of Robin Hood on Maid Marian Way closed seven years ago.

    Bob White from the World Wide Robin Hood Society said he hopes the people behind the latest one learns from the mistakes of the past.

    He said the Tales attraction failed because it "never had investment to move with the times."

  13. Notts hope for more international fixtures

    BBC Sport

    Notts County officials say they hope hosting the first senior international fixture at Meadow Lane in the ground's 106-year history will lead to more England matches being played there in future.  

    England Women, who have already qualified for Euro 2017, will play their final qualifier in Nottingham against Estonia on 15 September.

    Chairman of the World Wide Robin Hood Society, Bob White, looks at whether Nottinghamshire makes enough of Robin Hood's marketing potential.

    He said the new Robin Hood Legacy attraction could only be a good thing as we don't have anything else like it at the moment.

    "We have things waiting in the pipeline but finally we can actually say there is something else to see about Robin Hood... Anything is an improvement on where we are now."
