    Quote Message: It's gut wrenching every time it happens. They're single use tins, which can have anything up to £200 in them. They just don't care, they're effectively denying us our bid to save our daughter's life. It's like they're murdering Kelly.' from Martin Turner Kelly's father

    Bob Dale

    BBC Live reporter

    A South East MEP is calling for Aung San Suu Kyi to be stripped of her Nobel Peace Prize.

    Conservative Nirj Deva says the de-facto leader of Myanmar, the country formerly known as Burma, should lose the honour because of her handling of the crisis in the Rakhine area.

    More than 123,000 Rohingya Moslems, a minority in the mainly Buddhist country, have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh, after attacks by militants led to a crackdown by security forces.

    Quote Message: When I campaigned for Aung San Suu Kyi to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, it was on the basis of her peaceful struggle for democracy and human rights for all. Now, having achieved her own freedom from imprisonment, and accepted all the plaudits and glittering prizes of recognition, she cruelly denies said freedoms to her own people.' from Nirj Deva Conservative MEP for South East England

    Leas Pavilion

    An Edwardian tearoom in Folkestone has been named as one of the country's top 10 most at-risk buildings.

    The Victorian Society says the Leas Pavilion needs urgent repairs and renovation to save it from being lost forever.

    The Pavilion opened in 1902 and was mostly used as a theatre until 1984, and a pub and entertainment venue until its closure in 2007.

    It's now owned by developers who were granted planning permission in 2015 to build 68 flats to both sides of the existing site..

    A local group continues to campaign for its survival.
