    There's a risk of a touch of frost and some icy patches as temperatures drop close to freezing - lows of 2C (36F).

  8. Changes to bin collections across Cambridge from Monday

    Orla Moore

    BBC Local Live

    Bin collections are set to change across Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire from Monday. 

    For most of the 130,000 households it'll mean a change to their bin collection day or time, or to the sequence in which their black or blue and green bins are collected.  

    Find out more at  www.scambs.gov.uk/bin-changes  and  www.cambridge.gov.uk/bin-changes .

    The changes will reduce mileage for collection lorries by 20,000 miles a year - and contribute to a £700,000 savings target over three years. 

    Householders have been sent new calendars to remind them when to put bins out.

  16. Animal oxygen masks now in every fire station

    Orla Moore

    BBC Local Live

    It's always important to think of our four-legged friends in the event of a fire.

    Cambridgeshire fire crews  do - and now animal-friendly oxygen masks will be available for teams in every station in the county. 

    The masks were donated to Cambs Fire and Rescue service after it joined forces with the charity  Smokey Paws , which provides first aid equipment for animals.

    Dogsthorpe firefighter Neil Hoskin put his retirement on hold to complete county-wide training on the use of the masks. 

    Here he is with his five year-old husky, Lexie, who's proving quite the actress.  

    Demonstrating animal mask use

    “They are not just for fires and smoke inhalation," Mr Hoskin said.

    "They can be used to help revive an animal after blood loss, trauma, drowning, even heat exhaustion. All the reasons you would give oxygen to a human for, you would do the same for an animal."

  17. Elsewhere in the county: what the papers say
