Joel Osborn, who is aged 11 and lives in Stroud took this amazing picture of a kingfisher this morning.

He said he'd been sledging earlier and had gone to look for some deer - but didn't see any.

"But, then I caught a flash of blue in the corner of my eye as this kingfisher landed on a branch near the lake, Joel said.

"He caught a few fish and ate them. An amazing experience."

Bath shopping centre closed after 'dangerously close' collapse

The Corridor shopping centre in Bath was closed today after two separate roof collapses due to snow.

Large blocks of stone were pulled from the parapets above its glass roof by a pigeon net, weighted down with snow, a local shopkeeper confirmed.

There were two separate incidents, which he described as "very serious - they could easily have cause a fatality if they had hit someone".

The first was this morning, when the public were in the centre. A second collapse happened at around 3.30pm, the witness said.

But, Friday's snow meant that not many shoppers were around and no one hurt.
