Historic MK Library to be given protected status

Milton Keynes' historic central library will be given Grade II listed status, to recognise the significant architectural and historical interest it holds.

The building is one of eight libraries across the country given the status, including the Suffolk Record office, which was built in 1963.

Milton Keynes library was built in 1979, and quickly stood out as a significant landmark in the city because of it's iconic looming architecture.

The library houses many of the town's records and archives.

The British Library in London, which houses the Magna Carta, has also been given protected status by Historic England.

People living in Woburn Sands near Milton Keynes say they've been left without their landline phones for a week because of a faulty underground cable.

On certain streets internet access has gone too and, for some, it's proving more than a little inconvenient.

Tony Armstrong's garden is currently his office. His home phone is out of action, and he only gets mobile reception on the lawn. He's worried the situation's losing business for his private car hire company.

BT say they've had reports of problems at about 100 properties, including on Chapel St and The Leys, but that more roads may be affected.
