    Oxfordshire residents will be encouraged to contact the county council online more frequently as part of plans to save £15 million from the authority's budget.

    The council has unveiled cost-saving proposals today, which include streamlining its back-office functions and reducing the number of properties it owns.

    The 41-year-old had tried to leave the Angel and Greyhound Meadow in Oxford by climbing over a park gate protected by wrought-iron spiked railings.

    The evidence is the earliest archaeological proof of monkeys using tools outside Africa. 

    It raises the possibility that early humans may have been influenced by watching monkeys with stone tools, say the scientists.

    There aren't many who can claim to supply hats to a future prime minister. But Henley's Liz Felix of Liz Feliz Millinery - who counts Theresa May as a customer - is now a member of the exclusive club.

    And what is perhaps a good sign for the country, Mrs May, we're told, is a decisive customer who knows her own mind...

    Quote Message: Her manners are impeccable. She's a very nice lady. She's quite decisive about what she likes and what she doesn't like - which is great. Very easy to deal with... a pleasure to sell hats to. from Liz Felix
