  3. Clumber Park charges 'a disgrace'


    You've been having your say on our Facebook page about the new charges at Clumber Park.

    Debbie Kings wrote: "These places cost huge sums of money to maintain and protect - and that's without the damage caused by thousands of people visiting - including the ones who think the signs asking them to keep off certain areas or dogs on leads etc. dont apply to them."

    But Damian Hunt simply called it a "disgrace".

    If you've been wondering what the big red circles on the skin of some of the Olympic athletes are - this is why.

    It's an alternative therapy similar to acupuncture, whereby flammable liquid is lit in a glass cup and applied to the skin.

    The likes of champion swimmer Michael Phelps swear by it.

    The warning has come from Clinical Commissioning Groups covering the districts of Mansfield and Ashfield, and Newark and Sherwood

    They say people going to the accident and emergency department at Kingsmill when it isn't urgent, is costing too much money.

    A visit to A&E costs the NHS about £120, while it's around £46 pounds to see your GP. 

    Both CCGs have to save £18.5m from their budgets this year - more than double the amount they had to save last year.
