  1. Fire at car repair workshop

    Seven fire crews have been fighting a blaze at a car repair workshop near Littleport.

    About 30 firefighters from Cambridgeshire, Newmarket and Mildenhall in Suffolk, and Outwell in Norfolk were called to the fire in Old Pools Drove.

    Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said it was called shortly after 10:00.

    Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said the fire had been brought under control.

  2. Paws for playtime in the snow

    Amur tigress Katinka has been enjoying getting her paws cold as snow fell at Linton Zoo at the weekend.

    Katinka was born at the Cambridgeshire park in 2006 and was "definitely not disappointed with the seasonal enrichment nature provides", her keeper says.

  3. Thieves strike twice at Littleport businesses

    Two businesses in Littleport were burgled over the weekend.

    The first incident took place on Saturday night when three people broke in to Costcutter in Main Street, at about 23:15, making off with a cash machine.

    Police have not revealed how much money was inside.

    The second burglary took place in the early hours of Monday, when four people broke into the Co-op in Wisbech Road, at about 01:10, and stole cigarettes.

  4. Unusual Christmas gifts: Fruit bat, anyone?

    Adopting a wild animal from a conservation charity is a popular Christmas gift - who doesn't love a panda or a stunning snow leopard, after all?

    Well, if that doesn't rock your Santa sack, what about giving your nearest and dearest an Egyptian fruit bat?

    Shepreth WIldlife Park in Cambridgeshire thinks they would make the ideal gift.

    You don't get to take it home, but you might get to meet your bat up close and personal.

    Or, take a look at this video from the park's bat keeper if you prefer to love your fruit bat from a distance.

  5. Peak of perfection

    The UK has a new highest mountain, thanks to scientists at Cambridge-based British Antarctic Survey.

    Meet Mount Hope - in the part of the Antarctic claimed by the UK - it was recently re-measured by the organisation's map makers and found to tower above the previous title holder, Mt Jackson, by a good 50m (160ft).

    It's not quite hitting the heady heights of Mount Everest - at a whopping 8,848m - but you can read more about how Hope measures up from the BBC's science correspondent, Jonathan Amos, here.

  6. Snow patrol: Kind-hearted cops to the rescue

    "It's not just traffic", our road policing officers often say, and this snowy weekend was no exception.

    Members of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire unit were on hand to rescue two snowy souls in need of a helping hand.

    First up, this this poor, freezing cold dog was found abandoned in the snow and rescued by officers, who wrapped him up warmly.

    He might not have survived the night, they wrote on Twitter on Sunday evening.

    Next, this chubby chap whose reindeer had clearly done a runner with his sleigh, leaving Santa Claus with no other way to get to a children's Christmas party.

  7. Only a handful of schools shut in Cambridgeshire

    Sorry kids - time to pack the sledge back in the shed.

    It appears many caretakers have been busy de-icing the car parks, meaning schools remain open this morning despite yesterday's heavy snow.

    At our latest look Peterborough's schools are all open, but a handful of ones run by the county council are closed.

  8. Weather: Snow expected

    There's a warning that snow could fall in the Eastern region this weekend.

    In Northamptonshire, it's expected tonight.

    The Met Office says snow may fall in Norfolk and Northants on Saturday, as "one or two snow showers are possible in the west."

    On Sunday snow is predicted for the rest of the East.
