    Derbyshire's first whisky distillery has been given the go-ahead by Amber Valley Borough Council.

    White Peak Distillery will be based inside the industrial units at Derwent Works in Ambergate and could be producing whisky by the end of the year.

    The spirit will take at least three years to age, so in the meantime they'll be making gin.

    Check out these amazing pictures of Pit Lane Park near Stapleford.

    It was a cracking weekend weather-wise, and if you're green-fingered you've probably spent a fair bit of time out in the garden.

    BBC Local Live

    Traffic barriers will be installed on Bridgford Road and Radcliffe Road in West Bridgford ahead of the cricket matches this month.

    Nottinghamshire County Council said the barriers will reduce the width of the road slightly but it will aim to keep people walking on the pavements safer.

    Barriers to go in West Bridgford

    Paul Mckay, service director covering public protection at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “In line with other national events and following advice from central government to Nottinghamshire Police, we are carrying out these measures due to the large numbers of people expected on pavements around the cricket ground during forthcoming events and these barriers will also help guide pedestrians away from the busy roads.

    “There is no specific intelligence on any possible forthcoming threat – this is a precautionary measure.

    “This type of measure is becoming standard across the country at all major events as we have seen at Lord’s, Wimbledon and Glastonbury recently.”

    A Derby man has been jailed for five years and three months after travelling to Turkey to try to join so-called Islamic State.

    Det Ch Supt Clive Wain, head of the North East Counter Terrorism Unit, said: "By pleading guilty Hussain has admitted his intention was to take part in the conflict in Syria and was aware that he may be killed. 

    "We were not aware of Hussain’s intentions prior to him travelling and therefore by the time we intervened he had already committed an offence.

    "However by reporting their concerns Hussain’s family may well have saved lives, including his own."
