Future of Union Chain Bridge from Scotland to Northumberland secured

The future of the oldest suspension bridge in the world still carrying traffic - between Scotland and Northumberland - has been secured.

The Union Chain Bridge between Scotland and England - which is almost 200 years old - has received £3.14m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF).

It will allow a major programme of repairs to begin next year on the structure over the River Tweed.

Councils on either side of the border have also committed more than £3m towards the scheme.

Berwick MP 'appalled' at decision to close A1 for two weeks

The Conservative MP for Berwick has hit out at Highways England over plans to close the A1 between the town and Alnwick for two weeks.

This scheme will see the road closed in both directions.

Anne-Marie Trevelyan said "I am appalled that this action has been undertaken without the input of the community.

"We can't have a situation where local residents lives are severely affected, and businesses are put under pressure because of a lack of consultation and due process.

"I have demanded to meet Highways England regarding this issue.

"Highways England will hear mine, and the communities message loud and clear, and that is, Highways England need to go back and consult properly, to ensure they mitigate any impact on residents and local businesses, by avoiding or reducing the current obstacles facing the people by this long and unsustainable closure period."

Could we now see Scottish booze cruises' to England?

It was back in 2009, when suggestions of a minimum unit price for alcohol surfaced, that the then MP Russell Brown raised concerns.

He suggested that, in southern Scotland at least, cross-border 'booze cruises might become the order of the day

Some years later, the path has now been cleared for the legislation to introduce a minimum price in Scotland.

So does anyone still believe it could see a rush of trade across the border to Carlisle or Berwick-upon-Tweed?

Tories in bid to censure Norwich MP

Andrew Sinclair

BBC Look East political correspondent

An attempt will be made by Conservative MPs in Parliament this afternoon to try to censure Clive Lewis, the Labour MP for Norwich South.

Nusrat Ghani, MP for Wealdon in Sussex, says she will ask the Speaker for an emergency debate to discuss a remark which he made to another man at a comedy fringe event at the Labour Party conference.

Mr Lewis has unreservedly apologised for using a word which is derogatory towards women.

But Ms Ghani has said on Twitter that Mr Lewis's comments "undermine parliament and women".

Other Conservatives are supporting her: the Norwich North MP Chloe Smith has said that Mr Lewis has "let down the city we proudly represent", while the Berwick-upon-Tweed MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan has tweeted "unacceptable language & mysogigny [sic] from Labour MPs cannot be allowed to continue."

Conservatives are making a fuss about this because there have been allegations of misogyny and racism surrounding the far left for some time, although very little evidence.

But it would be highly unusual, possibly even unprecedented for the speaker to allow such a debate to go ahead.

Over the weekend Mr Lewis was condemned by the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who called his comments "completely unacceptable". But he has said that Mr Lewis will not lose the Labour whip because he has apologised.

Anne-Marie Trevelyan keeps hold of Berwick for the Conservatives.

Only one more seat to go in the North East

And that is Berwick.

There are suggestions it might be a while - but we're fully prepared to accept that anything said with certainty almost certainly won't happen these days.
