The new Star Wars film 'Rogue One' is released on Thursday - and one keen inventor has brought a bit of the movie action to a back garden in Stamford. In fact it's not so little - Youtube star Colin Furze has built a giant model of the four legged Imperial attack vehicle known as an 'AT AT'. And our reporter Stuart Leithes has been to see it.
The 20-year minimum terms handed to a teenage couple for the brutal "executions" of a mother and her daughter have been referred to the Attorney General for being "unduly lenient".
Believed to be Britain's youngest double-murderers, the boy and girl - both 14 at the time of the murders - had sex, shared a bath and watched four Twilight vampire films as they "revelled" after the stabbing of dinner lady Elizabeth Edwards, 49, and 13-year-old Katie Edwards.
Now both 15, the couple were handed life sentences by Mr Justice Haddon-Cave, who said the pair had a "toxic" relationship and acted in a "grotesque" way.
"Had you been adults you may have been facing the whole of your lives in prison for this double murder."
The case was referred to the Attorney General under the unduly lenient sentence scheme and law officers have 28 days to decide if any action should be taken.
A statement from the Attorney General's office said: "The threshold to refer cases to the Court of Appeal is very high."
A sentence can only be regarded as unduly lenient if there has been a gross error and it is significantly below the level that any judge could have reasonably imposed after considering the facts of the case."
