Cambridge City Council has won a court order preventing a punting company carrying on its business from various locations in the city.

The authority said that Traditional Cambridge Tours and a number of individuals had trespassed by conducting unauthorised commercial operations on its land.

The High Court ruled any breach of the order would amount to a contempt of court which is punishable with imprisonment or a fine.

A man who blackmailed, threatened and assaulted his victims in Cambridge has been jailed for more than three years.

Thomas Pilgrim, 31, was arrested last year on suspicion of a number of robberies and frauds. Cambridge Crown Court heard his victims feared for their own safety. The judge banned him from contacting any of his victims.

Police learnt how Pilgrim forced one of his victims to constantly drive him around in his car, threatening him if he did not take him to various places.

This was followed by demands for money, forcing the victim to withdraw hundreds of pounds from cashpoints and threatening to stab him if he told anyone about the cash.

Another victim was made to withdraw about £350 in cash at various locations and hand it over to Pilgrim, again being threatened if he did not comply.

Pilgrim took advantage of his victims and made them fear for their own safety, these incidents have had a considerable impact on their lives and I hope that by knowing Pilgrim is now behind bars they will be able to move on with their lives.

Uncertain future for roadside landmark

A landmark you might have spotted on a trip along the A47 near Peterborough now has an uncertain future.

The derelict farmhouse known as Canary Cottage - because of its yellow door and windows - sits on the site of a former grain storage depot.

And now the owners plan to sell the site - but the 18th century cottage doesn't have any sort of protected status.
