    Sandish Shoker

    BBC News Online

    Chief executive of Nottinghamshire County Council, Anthony May, apologised and said it was "highly regrettable" that the accident had happened (as reported at 15.21).

    He said they had "contingency funding" in place to pay the £1m fine from the court and had already taken action to review and improve their safety procedures. 

    He added: "We know things went very wrong on the day and that we failed in our duty of care. For that reason, we have worked hard to improve health and safety arrangements at Rufford Abbey, and across the council."

    In the statement Mr May said they had carried out their own investigation and have since improved driver training, improved risk assessments for vehicle use and improved their public information in parks.

  6. Football: National League winners aiming to follow Burton promotion blueprint

    BBC Sport

    A football club which secured promotion to the English Football League at the weekend is using Burton Albion as an inspiration to get from non-league football to the Championship

    Lincoln City won the National League title on Saturday, eight years after Burton began their ascent up the Football League.

    "I think it's realistic [to reach the Championship]," managing director Kevin Cooke told BBC Radio Lincolnshire.

    "I don't see why we can't do that, as long as you put good foundations down."

    Burton were fighting to gain Football League status in 2008 but eight years later, in 2016,  were promoted to the second tier for the first time in their history.

  8. Warning over theft of realistic air guns

    A collection of realistic BB guns and air weapons have been stolen from a shed, prompting a warning from police.

    The six BB guns and 11 airsoft weapons - similar to paintball guns - were taken sometime last week from a house in Merrill Way, Allenton.

    Insp Greg Hunt warned that while the guns are not illegal to own, it could be illegal "to have them in your possession in public".

    “Perhaps more importantly though is how realistic they are to the appearance of a real firearm and as such could cause significant fear to a member of the public," he said.

    "If our armed officers were called to an incident involving someone carrying such an item they may have only a very short time to decide whether that person was a danger to them or the public, with potentially serious consequences."

  10. Your comments: Solar powered bins 'a waste of money'

    Facebook

    Last week we told you about Derbyshire Dales District Council investing in new solar bins to place around Matlock, Ashbourne, Wirksworth and Bakewell. 

    Here's what a few of you had to say about this on our Facebook.

    Julie Scott said: "No wonder council tax has gone up ! The bins we had have been good enough for the past God knows how many years."

    Kieran Pallett wrote: "Supposedly saving money in the long run by needing to be emptied less often and more collections on a van etc. Had them in Nottingham for years."  

    Linda Gregory added: "Pity they don't have a light on domestic bins so they could be emptied when full!"

    Daniel Hatton also added: "Waste of money."

    BBC Local Live

    Campaigners behind a project to try to build an Alvin Stardust statue in Mansfield have released some artists' impressions of what they hope it will look like.

    Stardust, who was once described as "the Godfather of British Rock 'n' Roll", grew up in Mansfield and also attended what is now Southwell Minster School.   

    The group behind the memorial said they have raised around £2,000 for the statue, which will be situated at Mansfield Museum. 

    They are still deciding how much more fundraising they need to do as the amount of money raised will determine the final statue size.
