    It will be a largely dry and bright start tomorrow with some good spells of sunshine through the morning.

    Scattered showers will move eastwards into the afternoon which have the potential to be heavy and perhaps thundery with blustery winds.

    This little ferret has finished a long walk with its owner Charlie Hammerton...

    Bandit, the ferret

    Charlie and Bandit raised £3,510 by walking the entire length of Hadrian's Wall - all 86 miles (138km) - in three days in memory of Charlie's mother, Jan.

    She died in March after suffering from motor neurone disease and Charlie undertook the walk just five days after her funeral.

    Charlie, who lives in Arnold, said: "Our story seemed to get a lot of interest from a lot of people about how inspiring we were, so we sort of ventured into motivational speaking - that is one thing I am very keen on."

    He is now gearing up for another charity walk - this time in the Netherlands.

    Sunderland have confirmed Darron Gibson will face an internal disciplinary process after he was filmed appearing to criticise team-mates after Saturday's 5-0 friendly loss to Celtic.

    Derby County boss Gary Rowett will no doubt be watching developments with interest - Sunderland are due to face the Rams in the season-opener at Pride Park Stadium on Friday.

  10. Police boss: Carrying a knife 'the most stupid thing you can do'

    Gavin Bevis

    BBC Local Live

    Leicestershire's police and crime commissioner Lord Willy Bach has warned young people to stop carrying knives.

    It comes as police in the county try to halt a trend which has seen knife crime increase by 25% in the past year.

    Lord Willy Bach

    "When you go out, go out to enjoy yourselves, don't go out with knives - it's the most stupid thing you can possibly do," he said.

    "You're just as likely to be a victim as a perpetrator and if you're caught, you're likely to end up in custody and it can be as long as four years."

    Two men tried to rob a woman as she waited at a bus stop in Worksop at the weekend.

    The woman told police one of the men grabbed her arm and demanded she hand over her purse in Priorswell Road at about 03:40 on Saturday.

    However, she pulled her arm free and ran away without handing anything over.

    Police are now appealing for help identifying the pair.
