Yes, Chris Holmes from Sawston in Cambridgeshire decided to leave his job at Stansted Airport to start up his own cake-making business, so it seemed only fitting that, rather than announce his departure in writing, he should put it in icing.

Well just a few months on and he is using his baking skills for another big occasion...this time, a proposal.

Cambridge City Football Club is currently based at Milton Road, Cambridge

The public are being asked for their views on plans for a new stadium for Cambridge City Football Club. The club wants to move from Milton Road in Cambridge to the site of an old rubbish tip to the north of Sawston.

The stadium would hold 3,000 seated and standing fans. The proposals include two floodlit football pitches, as well as fitness and conference facilities. The consultation runs until 6th May.

Flat fire may have been started deliberately

Police are investigating a possible arson attack at a block of flats in Cambridgeshire.

They believe the fire was started in the entrance area of the flats on The Green Road in Sawston at about seven o'clock in the evening on Sunday 20th May.

The Fire Service rescued six people from balconies. There were no serious injuries, but one person was taken to Addenbrooke's hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.
