  6. Derbyshire Boer war 'time capsule' makes £4,000 at auction

    Greig Watson

    Reporter, BBC News Online

    A treasure trove of items from one of the British Empire's toughest colonial wars has made eight times its estimated price at auction.

    Medals, equipment and unpublished photographs from the Second Boer War were found in a house in Derbyshire.

    The images were collected by Sgt Robert Oliver, who survived the 1899-1902 conflict as a policeman and then returned to the UK to run a pub.

    The items had an estimate of £400-£600 but went under the hammer for £4,000.

    Items which were found

    The lot included 80 loose photos and more than 100 photos in a separate album.

    These showed graphic images like British dead after a battle and a military funeral, but also lighter-hearted scenes like washing from a bucket and a dog smoking a pipe.

    Describing the collection as an "incredible time capsule", Charles Hanson, of Hansons Auctioneers, said they had national and international interest.

    The sale also contained two pairs of kid gloves, spurs, an ammunition bandolier, caps and hats, a South African feathered headdress and a cartridge belt.

  13. Watch: Hindu temple reduce 'needless' waste of milk

    Amy Woodfield

    BBC Local Live

    A Hindu Temple in Leicester is asking for very small donations of milk for Shiva Abhishek (the ritual pouring of milk on to the Deity) during the holy Shraavan month.

    The Brahma Samaj, that reopened yesterday, claims the milk usually just ends getting wasted with gallons ending up down the drain.

    Instead of buying milk, the temple is asking its congregation to save the money and donate it to help feed families and children in Leicester who are living in poverty.

    The move has been called "bold and progressive" as the Shiva Abhishek ritual is hugely important to Hindu communities.

    They now want other temples in Leicester to follow suit and join the campaign.

    Rashmi Joshi made the announcement at the reopening of the temple yesterday...
