A company from Cambridgeshire has inlisted the help of raccoons to take part in an unusual product development test.

The firm, from Dry Drayton, has designed a new cat flap which scans the unique ID code inside microchipped pets and locks all other animals out.

The raccoons at Shepreth Wildlife Park were chosen to see if they could crack the system. So far they've failed to break in.

A woman has won a fight to have her great uncle's name spelled correctly on a village memorial in Cambridgeshire 97 years after his death during the First World War.

Alison Corfield says the mis-spelling of Private George Samuel's name as "Samuels" on the memorial in Shepreth caused great distress to her parents after the war ended.
