The UK's only ferry link from our region to Scandinavia is making its final crossing.
The last passengers boarded the DFDS Seaways ship bound for Denmark yesterday. It is due to arrive in Esbjerg early this afternoon.
The route between Harwich in Essex and the Danish port had been in operation for nearly 140 years, but DFDS says new European laws on what fuel they use mean the route is no longer sustainable. Passenger numbers have dropped from 300,000 to about 80,000.
A £1,000 holiday, nine Mars bars, juggling balls, a broken dog biscuit and a discount on a kebab are among 'thank you' gifts given to police officers in Cambridgeshire, it has been revealed.
One received four cans of lager, another bags of crisps while a female officer was given two pheasants and one lucky officer got a filter for a vacuum cleaner.
A Freedom of Information Request has revealed a dozen presents were gifted to officers last year including a bag of home grown potatoes, 120g bar of Dairy Milk chocolate, 20% John Lewis discount voucher - value unknown - a bottle of bubbly, chocolates, biscuits, a bottle of Jura whisky and wine as well as a book and the Mars bars.
In previous years a constable in Ely was given a "small discount" at Ali's Kebabs, while in St Neots an officer was given a box of eggs and in Ely a member of the public gave a female officer an "afternoon fishing for her husband".
Other gifts included juggling balls, football shirts, bag of chips, flowers, pizza, strawberries, steak, venison sausages, carrots, cider, Polish lager, honey, asparagus, plums and corn.
A police spokesman said: "The force has an open and honest gratuities and gifts policy which relies on staff and officer honesty and discretion; in-line with the College of Policing's Code of Ethics.

In the latest in our reports on housing in the East, we look at the Government's 'Help to Buy' scheme.
It was launched by the Prime Minister in our region and it seems we've embraced the scheme more enthusiastically than anywhere else in Britain.
Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes and Peterborough have been among the biggest users of Help to Buy - which enables people to buy a home with a 5% deposit.
But critics of the scheme say that, by backing up people's mortgages, the government is encouraging us to get into debt - and will push up house prices.

The East of England is becoming an increasingly popular place for commuters to live.
From Northampton to Chelmsford, more people are moving here and then travelling into London, either by rail or by car, to escape the city's high prices.
That maybe good news for people selling their homes who are seeing house prices rise, but what impact is this having on the way we live in the East?
