Carillion collapse raises job fears

The construction giant Carillion has gone into liquidation this morning.

The company is a contractor for the planned HS2 railway line through Buckinghamshire, the East West line and the electrification of the Midland Mainline north of Bedford.

The firm - which employs 20,000 people in the UK - has debts of £1.5bn.

The Cabinet Office minister and MP for Aylesbury, David Lidington, said the government will do all it can to protect the company's workers.

"The first priority, and the one that I've asked all ministers and all officials to concentrate on is actually ensuring that public services continue," he said.

"So the message to workers is come into work today, there's important work to be done.

"As we go forward, some services will be taken in-house [and] some services will go out to alternative contractors in a manged, orderly fashion."

At the scene: Cordon in place

I've just arrived in the Waddesdon area, and this is the scene at the edge of a police cordon near the site of today's reported mid-air crash.

Officers aren't letting anyone much closer to the scene than this.

Aylesbury crematorium protesters oppose new plans

Protesters fighting plans for a crematorium on land near Aylesbury are preparing to oppose the latest plans submitted by developers.

Work on the Watermead Crematorium site had already started when a High Court judge quashed the planning permission.

"It's just in the wrong place," Sue Severn, chair of the Watermead Parish Council told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"Most crematoria are hidden away from sight with lovely rolling hills; it helps give the bereaved some peace as well."

A decision on the new plans could be made by December.

Aylesbury: Constituency analysis

Andy Holmes

BBC Three Counties Radio political reporter

David Lidington has been the MP for Aylesbury for 25 years and, with a majority of more than 17,000 in a seat that’s been Tory since 1924, it’s hard to see that changing tonight.

In fact, the Independent candidate Kyle Michael has unsuccessfully tried to get all opposition parties to stand together in a combined fight against him, so we’ve seen UKIP, the Lib Dems, the Greens and Mr Michael all standing against Mr Lidington.

In 2015, UKIP was a distant second in a town that it had performed well in at the 2013 local elections, but having lost all its seats in the latest county council elections, it may struggle to do that this time.

Before 2015, the Lib Dems had been the main Tory opposition, finishing second to Mr Lidington in all the previous elections where he’s stood in the town.

County council election: Bad time for UKIP

Andy Holmes

BBC Three Counties Radio political reporter

In the 2013 elections UKIP and Aylesbury was one of the big stories, as they gained five seats in the town to become the official opposition party in Buckinghamshire.

Four years later, the remaining three UKIP councillors have lost their seats.

Leader Andy Huxley and Chris and Brian Adams have been defeated - plus Phil Gomm who went Independent in 2015 but stood again for UKIP this time.

Paul Irwin, who also crossed the floor from UKIP in 2015, has retained his seat in Stone and Waddesdon for the Conservatives.
