A campaign has been launched to save a Fenland town's museum which is also one of the oldest purpose-built libraries in the world

Funding for Wisbech's museum has been cut despite housing a treasure trove of items ranging from Napoleon's breakfast set to the original manuscript of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations.

It is a treasure trove of fascinating artefacts that is testament to the Victorian desire to make knowledge accessible to all. The museum was built in 1847 and still contains its original mahogany display cases full of beautiful objects.

A pensioner from Cambridgeshire says she's had the worst Christmas ever after fraudsters conned her out of her life savings.

80-year-old Doreen Kent and her daughter had £45,000 stolen from their bank accounts after thieves used a text messaging scam to trick them into handing over their personal details.

The money was in an account Mrs Kent shared with her daughter Angela. Posing as fraud officers from her bank, the hackers sent her a text message.
