    Plans to build a joint police and fire station in Crewe have been dropped after it was discovered the project would have cost taxpayers £18m.

    Members of Cheshire Fire Authority voted unanimously to move forward with plans to build a station just for the fire service instead.

    Officers found that a large basement car park would have to be built to provide enough parking spaces for police and the fire service, which would bump up the cost by a "considerable amount".

    The fire service now hopes to have designs ready by the end of the year for the new station, which, if approved, will be built on the site of the existing one at the corner of Macon Way and Crewe Road.

    A teenager's been robbed of his bike at knifepoint.

    The 14-year-old was cycling with a friend in Crewe on Thursday evening when Cheshire Police said two men came up to them on Dunwoody Way.

    They first asked if they wanted to buy drugs and, when the pair said no, demanded the victim's bike and pulled out a large knife.

    Officers say the teenager handed the bike over and ran off.
