    People from a Leicestershire village say they are shocked after lead was stolen from their church roof, just months after it was restored.

    The church in Goadby Marwood, near Melton Mowbray, dates back to the 12th century, and is Grade I listed.

    It's thought thieves stole the lead from the roof over several nights last week, with repairs expected to cost about £100,000.

    BBC News Online

    The parents of a student who took her own life are facing a £70,000 bill for her inquest because they cannot get legal aid funding.

    Natasha Abrahart, 20, from West Bridgford in Nottinghamshire, was studying physics at the University of Bristol when she died on 30 April 2018.

    Margaret and Robert Abrahart

    Robert and Margaret Abrahart are joining a campaign at Westminster today over legal aid, which would help them pay for it.

    They believe they need to find answers for themselves and so this doesn't happen to others. So far they have raised £20,000 through crowdfunding for the inquest in May.

    Four fans were arrested last night at Forest's home clash against Derby County.

    About 29,000 people flocked to the City Ground last night to watch Forest beat their rivals 1-0.

    Police at a match

    Police had warned fans they would be monitored with drones but they said they were "pleased to report the evening passed largely without incident".

    But by 22:30 after the match they had arrested four males in connection with incidents reported before, during and after the game. There were others reported to them which they said they will follow up in the coming days.
