  3. BBC refused permission to appeal in Cliff Richard case


    A judge ruled the BBC infringed the singer's privacy in its reporting of a police raid on his Berkshire home in 2014, awarding him £210,000 damages.

    Sir Cliff was never arrested or charged as part of the investigation.

    The BBC sought leave to appeal against the High Court ruling but the application was rejected.

    The BBC will now decide whether or not to go directly to the Court of Appeal to seek permission to appeal.

  7. Hatti Archer to recieve 2010 silver medal after athletes disqualified

    Hatti Archer competing

    Oxford athlete Hatti Archer will, this weekend, be awarded with a European silver medal she won eight years ago.

    The 36-year-old (formerly Hatti Dean) finished fourth in the 3000m steeplechase in Barcelona.

    But two athletes that finished ahead, one Russian and one Spanish, have since been disqualified for drug and bio-passport offences.

    The presentation will take place at the Grand Prix in Birmingham on Saturday.

    Ms Archer said: "When I first heard about the promotion to bronze I had very mixed emotions. Obviously I was pleased but I was also gutted that this hadn’t happened at the time.

    "However, after going through a bit of an emotional rollercoaster when I was told it was upgraded again to silver I was really happy and I am so looking forward to receiving my medal."

  10. Appeal for 'fire watchers' to help during heatwave

    Crop fire

    Oxfordshire County Council Fire and Rescue Service is hoping members of the public will act as "fire watchers" to help deal with the increasing number of wildfires and crop fires in the heatwave.

    Since it began on 5 June there have been almost 200 such fires in the county.

    Crop fire

    Area manager Jason Crapper said: "For firefighters getting to incidents quickly makes a huge difference in terms of the time and resources needed to get them under control.

    "If you spot a fire in the countryside don’t try and tackle it yourself, a bucket of water is not going to do the job. Instead dial 999 and ask for us.

    "And crucially we’ll need an accurate fix on the location, information about nearby road junctions and local landmarks help us out a lot in pinpointing incidents."
