  3. Marcus Willis' Mum: 'He's like the Jamie Vardy of tennis'

    The mum of Britain's Wimbledon hero Marcus Willis has hailed her son as the "Jamie Vardy of tennis."

    Willis, ranked 772nd in the world, beat world number 54 Ricardas Berankis on Monday to book a showdown with Roger Federer tomorrow.

    The Warwick Boat Club coach's mum Cathy hopes his rise shows other players that anything is possible. 

    "I always told him, 'I think you can do it' and now he's a bit older he's got the break he needed - he's like the Jamie Vardy of tennis isn't he? He certainly likes a party," she said.

  10. Analysis of report criticising HS2

    Richard Westcott

    Transport correspondent

    I've been looking at the National Audit Office report which says the HS2 high-speed rail project has an "unrealistic timetable".

    It was written before the Brexit vote, so it doesn't speculate on what effect, if any, it could have on HS2.

    Train on railway

    The Department for Transport's very keen to send out a "business as usual" message, promising that planned investment in our roads and railways won't suffer.

    MPs are due to vote on phase one of HS2 later this year. If they approve the bill, that's effectively the green light to start building the line from London to Birmingham. And MPs approved the project overwhelmingly the last time they had a vote.

  11. Marcus Willis enjoys his time in the headlines

    Shunning a courtesy car to travel into Wimbledon today, the Warwick Boat Club coach, Marcus Willis, who stunned Wimbledon yesterday, travelled in on public transport.

    "I came on the tube this morning", he said. 

    "A couple of people came up to me and obviously I was on a couple of front pages and people were pointing at that. 

    "But everyone was very lovely, I had a couple of photos and it was all nice-spirited. The public have been amazing. I haven't had a chance to reply to all the messages but thanks to everyone. It really means a lot to me."

  13. Brexit: Polish workers asked 'are you packed already?'

    BBC Coventry & Warwickshire

    I've been speaking to people working in Coventry to gauge reaction to the EU referendum result.

    Karoline Grabowska, 26, from Poland, who works in Kroovka on Far Gosford Street said leaving the EU is a bad decision "because I don't know what my future will be".

    After living in the city for three years, she and her husband are now considering a move to another country.

    She said a friend who also works in the shop told her some customers said they had been asked by work colleagues "are you packed already"?

  16. HS2 has 'unrealistic timetable', says National Audit Office

    The HS2 high-speed rail project, due to run through Warwickshire, has an "unrealistic timetable" and faces major cost pressures, a report by the National Audit Office (NAO) has said.

    The £56bn programme linking London and Birmingham, has too ambitious a schedule and rising costs could mean that not all its intended benefits are delivered, the NAO said.

    Proposed HS2 rail line

    The NAO said the 2026 target opening date for the first phase was "at risk, despite good progress".

    But HS2 Ltd said it was confident that it could achieve its objectives.
