  13. Father of murdered toddler plans funeral

    BBC Radio Nottingham

    The father of a murdered toddler is fighting to bring her home for her funeral.

    He's been jailed for a minimum of 20 years, while 26-year-old Abigail Leatherland has been jailed for three and a half years for allowing or causing her daughter's death in Cornwall in October 2017.

    Eve's father Dean Bird, from Mansfield Woodhouse, wants to bring her back to the town for the funeral.

    But he isn't named on Eve's birth certificate so he has to go to court to try and bring her body back. That hasn't stopped him from planning her funeral though.

    Dean Bird

    He said: "I don't want anything black, I don't want anything sad. We threw a party last year for her birthday and I tried to make it as fun as I could.

    "I want white horses, white carriage, I want to make it a really big send off - she deserves it she's been sat there for 17 months frozen. She's gone through the worst thing anyone could imagine."

    Local Democracy Reporter

    A Derbyshire primary school is set for a major extension to cater for significant housing developments in the area.

    The plans for Stanton Primary School would include three classrooms and a new kitchen - increasing the school's capacity by 70 pupils to a total of 210.

    Stanton Primary School

    Also included in the proposal is an extension to the school's hard-court play area, a new multi-use games area and additional parking.

    The application follows phase one of the school's expansion, approved in early 2018, which had included two classrooms and a new dining room.

    Derbyshire County Council is due to approve the proposals at its planning committee meeting on Monday 8 April.

    Planners say that expanding the school substantially is the "only viable option to meet the increased demand" from housing development in the area.

  17. Peak District visitors asked to report hen harrier sightings

    BBC Radio Derby

    The RSPB is calling on people to report any sightings of hen harriers in the Peak District.

    The charity is relaunching its hotline to find out where the birds of prey are nesting in the national park.

    Hen harriers

    Hen harriers are on the verge of extinction in England because of illegal killing and there are currently only nine successful nests across the whole country - including one in the Peaks.

    The RSPB said if people let them know where the birds are spotted the nests can then be protected.
