Both are due to be sentenced at Luton Crown Court tomorrow.

Travel delays in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire

The Highways Agency is warning of long delays in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire because of two ongoing incidents.

The A1 at St Neots and the A421 near Marston Moretaine are both closed and it's not known yet when they will re-open.

Some people may be affected by both closures say the Highways Agency while police investigations are carried out at the scenes.

Diversions are in place – for the A421 closure, from the M1 j13, drivers should take the A507 eastbound to Clophill, then proceeding on to the A6 northbound which re-joins A421 at Bedford.

For the A1 incident, on the A1 south, drivers should leave the A1 at (A14 J21) Brampton Hut, take A14 east and proceed to J24 (Godmanchester). At J24 they should then use A1198 south to Papworth to join B1040, then follow B1040 to A428 and take A428 (W) to A1. Drivers travelling northbound should take the reverse route.

“We are working closely with police to reopen these roads as soon as possible, but it is difficult to say how long that will be at this stage as accident investigation needs to take place. We would advise drivers to find alternative routes if at all possible”.

– Ray George, Duty Operations Manager for Highways England in the East

Only a third of young women think they have the same career prospects as men

Video report by ITV Anglia's Russell Hookey.

Figures out today (July 25) show a lack of confidence among teenage girls and young women over the kind of career they'll have in the future.

The charity Girlguiding says only a third of 17-21 year olds feel they will have the same prospects as men and this week it's running an event called CEO Camp in Bedfordshire to raise awareness of the issue.

"About one third of women aged 17-21 don't feel as confident going into the workplace or feel that they'll be as successful as their male counterparts, so we decided to combat this by running camp CEOs, so we get 20 young girls and we pair them with 20 really successful female leaders."
