  9. By-election sees Tory candidate win seat

    BBC News

    Leicester City Council will have a Conservative councillor after the party secured victory in a by-election.

    Daniel Crewe won election in the Humberstone and Hamilton ward after earning 1,062 votes, with turnout at 16.66%.

    The authority now has one Tory to go with one Liberal Democrat, with the rest of the 54-strong body made up of Labour members.

    The by-election was prompted by the death of John Thomas, who had served as an independent councillor after quitting the Labour Party in 2019.

  11. Garden waste collections in Hinckley and Bosworth suspended

    Liam Barnes

    BBC News

    Garden waste collections in Hinckley and Bosworth are being suspended for a week "as a result of rising numbers of waste drivers and crew told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace", the borough council has said.

    The authority also said a "national shortage of HGV drivers" has affected the issue.

    Suspending garden waste service up to 30 July is "hoped" to keep collections of residential and recycling waste running as normal.

    A number of councils across England have cited self-isolation as a reason for suspending collections.
