    Organisers of Isle of Wight Pride which has been selected to host UK Pride have promised "the best beach party the island has ever seen."

    The glitz and glamour of the showbiz world has found its way to Reading prison today.

    A film crew has been setting up down at the site, the future of which is still up for debate.

    After a little bit of digging, we have found out that filming is taking place for the BBC America programme Killing Eve.

    The show stars Jodie Comer (famous for Doctor Foster and Thirteen) but is unlikely to be shown in the UK, we understand.

    New Forest authorities, commoners' organisations and the police have joined together to appeal to local drivers to slow down as the clocks go back, to prevent animal deaths and injuries in the longer nights.

    Nearly 100 New Forest animals were killed or injured last year, with a quarter killed after the clocks went back and on four key routes.

    New signs are being placed on the roads which are most prone to crashes involving animals.

    BBC Sport

    Harry Redknpapp

    Former Portsmouth and Southampton boss Harry Redknapp says he would be interested in succeeding Gordon Strachan as Scotland manager.

    Strachan stepped down earlier this month after failing to guide his country to the World Cup.

    Redknapp, 70, who lives in Dorset, was sacked by Birmingham City in September after a run of six straight defeats.

    "Of course," the veteran manager replied when asked if the Scotland vacancy would interest him.

    "It must be a fantastic job to have. I think Gordon did what he could," he said.

  17. Support for Wantage leisure centre plan

    Plans to build a multi-million pound leisure centre in Wantage are set to go ahead after support for the facility in a public consultation.

    The centre would be built at Mably Way in the town next to the A417. It's hoped it would meet the needs of residents of the thousands of homes that are to be built in the area by 2031.

    Under the proposals, Vale of the White Hourse District Council will pay £18.8m upfront for the new centre, but will receive significant contributions from housing developers.

    More than 80% of people living in the area who responded to the consultation back the idea of the facility - and 70% agreed with the location.
