  6. Nottinghamshire misses out on Tree of the Year

    BBC Local Live

    Sherwood Forest's Parliament Oak (pictured) has missed out on becoming 2017's UK Tree of the Year.

    Parliament Oak

    Believed to be the oldest surviving tree in the forest, it's where King John is thought to have summoned a parliament back in the 13th Century.

    This year's winner of the Woodland Trust public vote was the Gilwell Oak in Epping Forest, Essex.

    It was reputedly used by Scouts founder Robert Baden-Powell as a metaphor for the movement's growth.

    The tree will now go on to represent the UK at the European Tree of the Year Awards in 2018.

    Sherwood Forest's Major Oak won the national vote in 2014 and Southwell's original Bramley apple tree was nominated last year.

  7. Memorial to remember victims of explosion

    BBC News

    A new memorial to remember the victims who died in the Chilwell Ammunition factory explosion is being planned for Attenborough.

    Next year will mark 100 years since the World War One disaster which killed 134 workers.

    The previous memorial was removed in recent years due to vandalism and deterioration but a new one will now be placed at St Mary's Church.

    Explosions

    Gill Linton-Smith, from the Chilwell explosion group, said: "It makes me feel very sad because those people gave their lives working for the First World War effort and were killed in a tragic accident and explosion.

    "There is nothing there to mark it and give them the commemoration they deserve."

    Last night's traffic chaos in Nottingham was described as the "worst in eight years".

    tram

    People were reporting journeys of several hours to get across the city.

    It was all down to a tram that collided with a van and derailed on University Boulevard at about 14:50, closing the road in both directions.

    NET tweeted that the tram was finally cleared about 23:15 last night.

    Here's how it all panned out.
