Head of Housing at Cambridge City Council calls on the government to take action and prevent investors buying homes and leaving them empty
Scientists in Cambridge say a third of Alzheimer's cases could be prevented, with changes to lifestyle.
A third of Alzheimer's cases are potentially preventable if people improve their lifestyles, according to a new study.
A seven-year-old boy from Hemsby in Norfolk has been taken to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge with serious head injuries.
Police say he was riding a scooter when he was in a collision with a car in Summerfield Road at about 6pm last night. Nobody else was injured.
Scientists in Cambridge say it may be "impossible" to completely eradicate all strains of MRSA in hospitals.
Instances of the superbug have decreased dramatically since 2001 because of new hygiene regimes, but experts say hospitals doing their best should not be penalised because it's impossible to control numerous strains of the bug being brought into hospitals unwittingly by patients and visitors.
– Dr Estee Torok
"If you go above a certain level of patients screened positively for MRSA a year, then we are fined a lot of money.
The Government shouldn’t be gallivanting around suggesting a zero-tolerance policy, it can’t possibly work, the level can never be at zero."
Parking charges are to be introduced at Cambridge's park-and-ride sites.
The £1 fee - which is on top of the bus fare - will apply at Babraham Road, Madingley Road, Milton, Newmarket Road and Trumpington.
The council said it had to find an extra £1 million to cover the running costs of the scheme.
Many people sometimes say it's their dream to run away to the circus. Well former city lawyer Gary Stocker has done just that.
Gary's always wanted to be a performer not a lawyer, so he now runs Chaplin's Circus where he also appears as a human cannonball.
Their circus will be performing in Cambridge and Saffron Walden in Essex.

A shortage of staff has meant that the hospital has found it hard to move people on from A and E to other departments. But managers say patients do not need to worry.

"So, in terms of clinical quality and care - there's no impact at all."
Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge has been placed on black alert because of a rise in emergency admissions.
It's the highest level of alert and has led to some planned surgery being delayed. Patients can not move on from A and E to other departments because of staff shortages and the large number of patients that have been admitted over the past couple of weeks.
Managers at the hospital say they have also opened contingency areas.
