Pride of Britain Winner Alice reflects on her year

She won Good Morning Britain's Local Hero Award at the Pride of Britain Awards in 2015, and Alice Burke returned to the show this morning to discuss how life is one year on.

But the first thing on Alice's mind was the whereabouts of our Ben Shephard as she asked "there's no Ben today?"

Alice was thrilled that Ben recored a special message for her and revealed she's still working in her local community where she mainly works caring for the elderly at a local luncheon club.

She also called on people to vote for their local heroes in the upcoming 2016 awards.

Are councils coming down too hard on dog owners?

I almost feel like I'm being asked to apologise for owning a dog in the UK

– Ryan O'Meara

A kennel club is claiming an increasing number of councils are using ASBO-style orders to ban and restrict dog owners from walking their pets in parks and public open spaces.

We sent Katy Rickitt to Daventry where she spoke to a professional dog walker who thinks the restrictions are a bit too much, as well as a member of the District Council who insists the rules needed to be brought in due to a small number of people who won't clear up after their dogs.

In the studio editor of K9 magazine Ryan O'Meara told us he feels the councils are using bans and restrictions when less extreme measures could be used.

Lord and Lady Heseltine: 'Grey squirrels need to be culled'

Lord Michael and Lady Anne Heseltine have spoken out about the culling over 400 squirrels on their estate in recent times.

The couple, who are owners of the Thenford Estate in Nottinghamshire, have just released a new book about their passion for gardening called Thenford, The Creation of an English Garden. But their passion is not one that that extends to grey squirrels who have been running riot on their estate.

"They are destroyers," Lord Heseltine said.

"They destroy the trees and they destroy the wildlife. We had 30 nesting boxes and every one of them was destroyed by squirrels eating the eggs. We culled over 400 squirrels in 70 acres in nine months, so in other words we had an infestation. If you cull the greys, you get red back."

First migrants leave Jungle camp in Calais

Six and a half thousand residents of the Calais migrant camp begin leaving in convoys of buses this morning.

The camp, which has been in Calais for 14 years, includes many vulnerable children who have been travelling on their own.

There are still many inside the jungle who say they are refusing to leave. A number of clashes with French police took place overnight and tear gas was fired.

Night flames lit up the sky for a second night running as tensions boiled over among residents angry at plans to demolish the camp and forcibly remove its residents on Monday.

The camp's closure has been described as "total chaos" by British and French authorities and there are worries that vulnerable families will face further danger.

Schools and facilities run by charities in the camp have already been shut.
