    The Prince of Wales has stepped into the cockpit of one of the new generation of stealth jets at RAF Marham.

    Five more F-35s will flying in from the US next week.

    "I think he warmed well to the technology aspects of the F-35 and also the UK industrial commitment within the programme."

  6. Fire risk stops heritage railway line running engines

    Nene Valley Railway near Peterborough has suspended its steam train services over fears sparks from the locomotives' coal-fired engines could set fire to "tinder dry" neighbouring fields.

    Instead, the voluntary-run vintage railway line - which is home to a blue engine named Thomas by Rev W Awdry (below) - is running heritage diesel trains between its stations at Peterborough, Wansford and Yarwell.

    Marketing officer Jerry Thurston said: "We thought, we have a social responsibility, we run through the best agricultural land in the country, let's be sensible."

    He added there is another advantage - the crews are much cooler on the diesel trains.

    Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service said it was called to 21 open air fires between Saturday and Tuesday, while yesterday crews tackled a 100 acre (40 hectare) field fire at Meldreth near Cambridge.

  8. Bid to save city's last grass tennis courts

    Campaigners hoping to save the last remaining grass tennis courts in Norwich have called a public meeting.

    Ten courts at Heigham Park have been closed since last summer and could be replaced with three all-weather courts by Norwich City Council.

    Heigham Park Grass Courts Group wants to take on the running and maintenance of the courts, which it said had been part of the park for almost 100 years.

    Gavin McFarlane, the group’s secretary, said: "We are not fighting against hard court tennis whatsoever, but there are several other places to do that in the city... without Heigham Park there will be no grass court provisions left in the area at all.”

    It is holding a meeting next Thursday.
