The owners of the Peterborough Panthers speedway team have announced that they'll not be running the club next year.
A farm charity near Peterborough has been awarded nearly £1.5 million in lottery cash to restore a water mill to its former glory.
An artist's impression of plans for pedestrianising part of Peterborough city centre appears to include an image of four-times World Time Trial champion cyclist Fabian Cancellara.
The image has been released by the council to show how the £6 million "cyclist friendly tree-lined boulevard" would look. Work is due to start in March 2014.
And it features a cyclist bearing a striking resemblance to 32 year old Cancellara on his time trial bike.
Cancellara is Swiss and has won his country's National Time Trial Championships title eight times.
Peterborough City Council have unveiled plans to transform Bourges Boulevard that runs through the centre of the city.
They include widening the road and putting in extra crossings, trees and a cycle way.
The project will cost in excess of four million pounds and will begin in March.
Parts of a Roman villa have been discovered on allotments in Peterborough. An £88,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund has now been awarded to the community to excavate the site.

A couple who tried to carjack a driver at gunpoint in Farcet have been jailed.
James Zimmerman, 41, and Rebecca Ferguson, 38, threatened the stunned driver after forcing him to stop by standing in the middle of The Broadway at about 6pm on April 28.
Zimmerman then pointed a gun at the 58-year-old victim's head ordering him to get out of the vehicle, while Ferguson jumped into the passenger seat. The motorist managed to drive off, pushing Ferguson out of the car.
Both were convicted of possessing an imitation firearm while attempting to commit an offence following a trial last month. Zimmerman, of Grove Court, Peterborough, was jailed for five years while Ferguson from Chadburn, Paston, was sentenced to four years in prison.
Fans of Peterborough Panthers have been reacting to the news that their club is to quit British speedway.

– Rick Frost and Julie Mahoney, Peterborough Panthers owners
“This was a very difficult decision to make, having put our heart and soul into Peterborough Speedway for over five years.
“We faced several problems, primarily the conclusion of the five years of the Readypower sponsorship, and without another team sponsor coming in or a firm TV deal, we couldn’t commit ourselves to another year not knowing where we would stand financially.
“We must say a big thank-you to everyone for the last five years – riders, sponsors, supporters and everyone who has worked for us. They have all helped us along the way,and this was a very tough and sad decision to make.”
Danish speedway star Kenneth Bjerre has expressed his sadness at the news that the Peterborough Panthers are to close.
The Panthers skipper has enjoyed three separate spells with the club, but will have to ride elsewhere next season.
Sad to hear peterborough speedway have closed. Been a pleasure to be part of the panthers. @pboropanthers
