  1. New Amazon warehouse in Daventry and more jobs at Cambridge development centre

    Online retail giant Amazon said it will create 5,000 new full-time jobs in the UK this year.

    The firm is looking for a range of workers including software developers and warehouse staff.

    There will be jobs at Amazon's head office in London, as well as in the Edinburgh customer service centre and three new warehouses, including one in Daventry, Northamptonshire.

    More staff will also be employed at the company's development centre in Cambridge, where Prime Air drone deliveries are currently being tested.

    The retailer says there will also be new jobs at its warehouses or "fulfilment centres" across the UK, which include Peterborough, Milton Keynes and Hemel Hempstead.

    Last week we brought you news that a cycle bridge connecting Ditton Meadows and Chesterton in Cambridge had been given the go-ahead by Cambridgeshire County Council.

    The bridge will cost £4.5m and will be one of the links that's going to make up the £8.4m Chisholm Trail - effectively a cycleway between the new Cambridge North and central railway stations.

    However, not everyone is happy.

    Friends of Ditton Meadows, a campaign group that looks to protect the area from construction, says it will be launching an appeal.

    A spokesman from the group said "preparation has begun for a judicial review".

    "We hope that a judicial review of this decision will also help other groups who object to ill-conceived projects in the Cambridge area.

    "We want to demonstrate to the county council and the City Deal team that due rigour must be applied throughout the consultation, planning and approval process."

    Officials say the bridge will cut vehicle congestion and provide a much-needed link between two parts of the city.

  3. U's win in style with comeback

    "We didn't deserve to be 2-0 down."

    Cambridge United secured themselves a second win of 2017 with a hard-fought comeback against Newport on Saturday.

    Former U's striker Ryan Bird netted twice for the visitors, who found themselves 2-0 up shortly after half time.

    However, goals from Barry Corr, Leon Legge and a rebound from a contentious penalty from Mark Roberts sealed all three points for the U's.

    "Our defenders will be disappointed with the goals they conceded today, but to get them both on the score sheet is a bonus," said boss Shaun Derry.

    "We're delighted with the three points. It makes a good week for us."

    Cambridge remain four points off the play-offs in 13th place.

  4. 10 man Posh suffer defeat

    "I'm angry at the discipline of my captain."

    That was the view of Peterborough United boss Grant McCann after losing 2-0 to Walsall on Saturday.

    Posh finished the game with 10 men after skipper Chris Forrester got a red card in the fourth minute of stoppage time for protesting over the first goal.

    In his post-match interview, McCann didn't hold back on letting his feelings known.

    "The fact he got sent off for shouting at a linesman is not what we're used to at our club," he said.

    "There was seven or eight minutes left.

    "There was still a chance to get back into the game."

    The goal in the 92nd minute, scored by ex-Posh man Erhun Oztumer, plus a second goal in the 97th minute saw Peterborough fall to a disappointing defeat.

    They fall to ninth in League One, four points outside the play-offs.

    They host Southend tomorrow.

    We're in for a mild Monday but sadly there won't be wall-to-wall sunshine across the BBC East region.

    There's a lot of cloud around and some places could get a spot of rain first thing but that will clear away eastwards. 

    Through the afternoon the cloud will thin a little, maybe even breaking, and where it does, the temperature could rise to a maximum of  14C (57F).
