  12. Foxes face Liverpool in League Cup match

    Ian Stringer

    BBC Radio Leicester Sport

    The Foxes are likely to make a number of changes for this clash as the Premier League is certainly the priority for Craig Shakespeare.

    That said, Leicester have a rich history in the League Cup and would dearly love a long run in this competition.

    Leicester City

    The year 2000 was a long time ago, but Matt Elliott’s brace to beat Tranmere Rovers at Wembley and lift this trophy still evokes positive memories for The Blue Army.

    Those days are needed again if European Football is to return to The King Power Stadium.

    Liverpool will make changes of their own but City need to take the game to their opponents in my view. We haven’t seen that enough. The Fearless Foxes need to make a return.

  15. Hundreds affected by Japanese knotweed

    Amy Woodfield

    BBC Local Live

    More than 300 sites in Leicester have so far been affected by Japanese knotweed.

    The plants roots can grow to a depth of three metres and is so destructive that some banks are refusing mortgages for those who have it on or near their property.

    This plant is in the Aylestone Road area where there is quite a lot of it.

    Japanese Knotweed

    The latest figures come from the city council who said 180 known cases are on private land and 121 are on council land.

    Environet is a company that removes the plant from the ground - Mat Day from the company told the BBC the strength of the plant's roots can destroy buildings.

    "One of the common misconceptions of it is that it can grow through solid concrete - it can't but what it will do is exploit cracks and gaps in that concrete.

    "Tarmac is a soft material so it will come up through tarmac as well. We've seen it coming through brick walls, working it's way through mortar as well."
