New bike sharing scheme to launch in Cambridge

Ofo bikes have gone down well in China

A new bike sharing scheme, that is already a big success in China, is being launched in Cambridge.

When cyclists finish their ride they find a legal parking spot for their bikes and leave them for the next user.

Users receive a message on their phone with a code to unlock the bike

All poultry in the region will be allowed outside from today as the risk of avian flu spread from wild birds is downgraded by authorities.

There have been more than 1,000 outbreaks across Europe this Winter.

Some birds had to remain housed because they were too close to open water.

There was an outbreak in Suffolk earlier this year where more than 20,000 birds had to be culled.

A campaign backed by Sir David Attenborough to raise a million pounds for a new nature reserve in the Suffolk Broads, has reached its halfway point.

Suffolk Wildlife Trust launched its appeal in October last year to extend Carlton Marshes near Lowestoft.

Since then nearly three thousand people have donated money.

The project is being backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund with an initial development grant. The project will see 150 acres of wet habitats for rare animals and plants created.
