William Shatner takes a punting trip at Cambridge

The 85-year-old - was seen by tourists, not in his familiar captain's chair, but sitting cross-legged in a punt in Cambridge yesterday..... no doubt keeping an eye out for Klingons on the starboard bow.

He was being chauffeured along the River Cam and appeared to be wearing a microphone leading to speculation he may have been filming for a television programme.

The Canadian star, who lives in Los Angeles, has continued to "live long and prosper" - it's 50 years since he first took the controls of the Starship Enterprise and 70 years since his first on screen appearance.

It certainly put a strain on our political parties - now counsellors in Cambridgeshire say Brexit is causing problems in our relationships too.

Relate, in Cambridge, has found many couples coming to see them are citing the result of the EU referendum as one of the causes of tensions for them.

"Clients don't always come with one specific issue and they don't always present with the issue that's really bugging them.

"I think all these things are going on under the surface and I think how a couple or a family manages differences of opinion is key to an issue like this."

– Elaine Taylor, Cambridge Relate.

But it is not just differences of opinion over which way to vote that has caused problems - worries about the future are an ongoing reason for disagreements.
