    The final full council meeting of Weymouth and Portland Borough Council saw current and former councillors recognised for their work.

    Andy Hutchings, who had served for almost 25 years before standing down, was among the existing Honorary Aldermen to receive a special badge at Thursday evening's meeting.

    He told the meeting, if nothing else, he would be remembered for getting a new sign put up in the former chief executive's office pointing to the way out.

    He said: "On my first day I was ushered into the chief executive's office and at the end stood up to walk out - only to find myself in his toilet. He said 'right, that's it' and after that a sign was put up saying 'this way out.'"

    The following were awarded Honorary Aldermen titles: Ian Roebuck, Kevin Brookes, Hazel Bruce, Christine James, Paul Kimber, Richard Kosior, Margaret Leicester, Pamela Nixon, Gill Taylor, Mark Tewkesbury and Kate Wheller.

    Only the most urgent repairs will be prioritised on Oxfordshire's roads because a full overhaul would cost £450m, the county's transport boss has said.

    Councillor Yvonne Constance said Oxfordshire County Council's entire budget for a year would be eaten up with all the work required to fix potholes and sinking roads.

    She called for utility companies to be held to a "higher standard" when repairing roads after installing cables and pipe.

    Ms Constance added work would not be going ahead to improve the A34 until plans for the Oxford to Cambridge "expressway" were finalised.
