It's been a day of misery for commuters using road and rail links across the region after a series of incidents caused huge delays for thousands of people.

On the roads, some of the worst congestion was seen on the M1 after a crash at Milton Keynes. Problems too on the A14 near Cambridge, which also led to congestion on the M11.

Meanwhile trains stopped running between Milton Keynes and London after a person was hit by a train. And services from Cambridge and Bishop's Stortford to London were affected by problems to overhead lines.

It came on the day that a new survey named Wellingborough as the town which offers the best deal to commuters when comparing factors such as house prices and the cost and time of travelling to London.

A man has been jailed for 18 years for a string of child sex offences.

Clint Gilbert, who is 21 and from Bedford, groomed families in order to gain unsupervised access to their children.

Gilbert sexually assaulted young children and shared images of his victims across the internet for two years.

Links to Gilbert were made when files he shared on the internet were discovered as part of another investigation.

Gilbert pleaded guilty to 14 charges last month, including nine sexual assaults on five young children in the town and a further five charges relating to possessing and distributing indecent images.

This significant sentence shows the gravity of offences committed by Gilbert. The trauma he inflicted on his victims and their families is despicable and we are pleased that he has received such a long stretch behind bars.

Nothing can ever undo the harm he has caused however we hope this gives the families some closure."

– Detective Constable Tanya Shotbolt

Gilbert is due to be put on the Sex Offenders’ Register.
