Also in news:

- Children and staff from a school that was in special measures just three years ago are celebrating after a successful Ofsted inspection.

- Work is expected to start on two new 20mph speed limit zones across the area later this year.

In sport:

- Although they had to settle for a point from their long travel to Workington on Saturday the Blues 1-1 draw enabled them to continue their climb off the bottom of the Evo-Stik Premier League.
