Stansted passengers face walking over a kilometre

Stansted Airport

Passengers at Stansted Airport face the longest walk from check-in to departure according to a new survey.

At the Essex airport travellers face a walk of over a kilometre or three quarters of a mile. At Luton Airport they may have to walk up to 822 metres or 900 yards.

Travel organisation Abta say many travellers who have difficulty walking only request assistance once they arrive at the airport, which may be too late.

This can lead to them having to make their way across terminals on foot or miss their flight.

A giant nest built by up to 10,000 stinging wasps has been discovered in a Northamptonshire loft space. by Peterborough based Pest Professionals.

The nest was allowed to reach close to its maximum size because the property in question, in the village of Pipewell, has been unoccupied for several years.

Specialists Pest Professionals based in Peterborough, say the nest is rare not only because of its size, but because the wasps built an intricate tunnel from the nest to the outside, which is perfectly preserved.

Police investigating the murder of a pensioner in Northampton are re-appealing for help to catch those responsible a year on.

David Brickwood was repeatedly stabbed at his home on Lindsay Avenue last September.

Detectives believe the 74 year old was targetted because he kept money in the house and was the victim of a botched burglary.

I believe someone targeted David, they planned to rob him and were prepared to use violence on an elderly man to get what they wanted. This was planned, which means it will have been talked about before the murder and almost certainly afterwards, when the people who did this, realised they had killed David.

Two Ford Focus cars seen near David's house on the night of his murder have not been located. Someone will have seen them, or know who was driving these in the area at the time.

David was defenceless in bed at his home when he was brutally attacked. His family are left with no answers and no justice. We know there are rumours and speculation locally. We know people have spoken to Crimestoppers, but we need the people who know what happened to David to contact us directly.
