    BBC Local Live

    Derbyshire County Council's chief executive has officially left his post today after the authority decided to abolish the position.

    Ian Stephenson worked for the council for 10 years - the last four as chief executive.

    The authority said the move will save it more than £300,000 a year on management costs.

    Quote Message: We have a duty to Derbyshire residents to use their money as efficiently and effectively as possible. There is no intention that the council will be making any 'golden handshake' payments. It's about doing things differently and making bold changes. We're confident this is the right way to go and can reassure people that the council is in safe hands." from Barry Lewis Leader of Derbyshire County Council

    A man remains in police custody on suspicion of the murder of a woman, who was exhumed at Carlton Cemetery.

    Jennifer Blackwell, 43, died in April in the Netherfield area of Nottinghamshire in what was thought at the time to be "non-suspicious" circumstances.

    But following her funeral in June, police said they were passed information which led them to start an investigation into her death.

    "It would be wrong to talk about the information that came to light," Det Supt Rob Griffin of Nottinghamshire Police said.

    The arrested male, 38, is known to Ms Blackwell, police added.
