A couple from Peterborough have spoken for the first time about their horrific ordeal during the Tunisian terror attack that claimed 38 lives.

Shirley and Joseph Church were enjoying a beach holiday when they were caught up in the violence nearly two years ago.

Shirley almost died of her injuries and had to have her leg amputated. Both say they are still suffering from the effects of post traumatic stress disorder

"It's going to bed, you're having these nightmares. You wake up in sweats. Every time you see it on telly - you know when someone else has blown up or been shot it all comes back."

– Joseph Church

Northamptonshire suffered their first defeat of the new County Championship season inside two days at Worcestershire.

Northants came into the game on the back of victories in their first two fixtures of the Division Two campaign, but they struggled with the bat at New Road.

The match was dominated by the ball, with both sides failing to register a score of more than 200 in each innings.

In the end, the visitors fell an agonising 20 runs short of their 185-run target thanks to a fantastic spell from Worcestershire bowler Joe Leach who took 5-62.

Max Holden top-scored for Northants with 37, but Ben Duckett was dismissed for just five.

David Ripley's side will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Thursday when they host Warwickshire in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Hundreds of scouts gathered in Peterborough this afternoon for a day of activities to honour St George.

Children of all aged joined in with the celebration at Nene Park where they had a go at things likes archery and rock climbing.

The scouts used to parade through the city centre instead, but this year they wanted to try something different.

Normally, we parade through the city centre.

As long as I've been doing it, I remember parading through the city centre and just doing that but this year we're out in Nene Park doing so many different activities.

You've got climbing walls, archery, cooking, crafts - there's so much.
