Letter written from the battlefield at Waterloo 200 years ago.

A newly published letter written from the battlefield at Waterloo 200 years ago goes on display in Cambridge today.

Experts say the note by British soldier Captain William Turnor highlights the courage of soldiers in the face of "the most bloody" of conflicts.

It will form part of an exhibition at the university - opened this morning by the Duke of Wellington.

Anger as free Milton school bus route axed by council

Parents in a Cambridgeshire village say they are angry after the free bus service which gets their children to school was stopped.

They claim the pupils from Milton now have to walk or cycle a long and unsafe route to school.

There is a parish council meeting this evening to decide the community's response to the county council.

It's a 60mph road - and there's no lighting on it. The pavement in places is half a metre wide.

And with 180 children coming from Milton every day, that road cannot sustain that safely.
