Recycling centre fire and gas leak 'not linked'

Dave Wade

BBC News

A fire in Worksop which has been burning for two days is not linked to a gas leak on the same street on Wednesday.

Firefighters were called to the Sandy Lane Industrial Estate on Saturday night to a blaze at a recycling centre.

Several roads in the area, which were closed, have now re-opened.

Police are investigating the cause of the blaze, while firefighters will be there "for the foreseeable future".

On Wednesday a 150m cordon was put in place for several hours on the same street because of a fractured pipe.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has confirmed there is no link between the two incidents.

"Those who suffer with asthma who may be in the vicinity of the fire should avoid exposure to smoke and carry their inhaler with them, the fire service said, advising people nearby to keep windows and doors shut.

Has the heatwave revealed any more ancient outlines?

Gavin Bevis

BBC News

Pilots and drone-owners have been urged to take to the skies over some of Nottinghamshire's most famous landmarks to find out whether the recent heatwave has shown up any more reminders of the past.

It comes after the hot spell revealed outlines of the former Clumber House at Clumber Park near Worksop.

The dry spell also showed up flowerbeds and paths of an ancient garden at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.

Now Nottinghamshire County Council says it's curious about whether any other foundations, outlines or buried gardens can be seen from the skies.

John Cottee, from the council's heritage team, said: "The last time there were conditions like this was 1976 and it took the archaeological community over a decade to sift through and study all the new sites that were discovered.

"The current conditions mean we have the same opportunity to expand our knowledge.

“We want to appeal to anyone who spends time up in the skies during this hot spell to consider taking a camera with them and share any images with us.

"Similarly, if you have drone footage and think you might have spotted something unusual, please let us know – although, remember there are specific regulations about what you can do with a drone. "

Was this motorbike fished out of the canal?

Sandish Shoker

BBC News

This motorbike has mysteriously appeared on the canal towpath in Nottingham city centre.

It's not clear where it has come from or how long it's been there, but given the poor state and the smell, it's possible it was fished out of the canal.

A spokesman for the Canal and River Trust said: "Whilst it’s better that it’s out of the water, and may have been taken out with the best intentions, it’s not ideal that it’s been left beside a popular stretch of towpath so we’ll get a team out as soon as possible."

The Trust added that items being dumped in the water can harm wildlife and cause problems for passing boats.

A spokesman added: "The bike would have been heavy, particularly under the water, and we wouldn’t encourage people to take it upon themselves to haul items like this out of the canal."
