  12. The Last Pass: Football's role in World War One

    BBC Sport

    At the start of World War One, the Football League - featuring Derby County and Notts County as founder members - had only been round for a couple of decades.

    Yet the sport was to play a fascinating role in the conflict, from England internationals helping to form special Footballers' Battalions to the emergence of the women's game, as well as the morale-boosting effect the sport had on the troops both deep behind the lines and all along the front.

    BBC Sport has been taking a closer look.

  13. Arsonist who 'put lives at risk' jailed

    Gavin Bevis

    BBC News

    A man who put lives at risk by starting several fires in a Leicestershire village has been jailed.

    Leicestershire Police said Danel Milburn was responsible for arson attacks in Mowsley Road, Bell Lane and Church Street late on the night of 29 August and the early hours of 30 August.

    After starting the fire in Bell Lane, he told staff from a nearby care home he was a trained firefighter.

    Daniel Milburn

    At Leicester Crown Court, the 34-year-old, of Burma Road, in Sharpness, Gloucestershire, pleaded guilty to three counts of arson recklessly endangering life and was jailed for five-and-a-half years.

    Det Con Chantel Booth said: "Milburn claimed to have been drunk at the time, which is no excuse for his actions.

    "He is lucky that no-one was seriously injured as a result, but what he did has still had a significant, lasting impact on a number of people."
