Back in the spring thieves cut a hole in the zoo's perimeter fence and stole one baby, two females along and two male emperor tamarins.

All but the very youngest were eventually found in Brighouse.

Police presence increased for Lokeren tie

Humberside Police say they are increasing the number of officers on duty for tomorrow's Europa League match between Hull City and KSC Lokeren.

Senior officers are responding to the trouble which flared between rival supporters after last week's first leg in Belgium which they insist was caused by a small minority of people.

Adults must stop 'hiding behind professionalism'

The Children's Commissioner for England, Dr Maggie Atkinson, has said that anyone who comes into contact with children has a responsibility to act on abuse and sexual exploitation.

She said: "Stop hiding behind your professionalism ... and really see the child in front of you, and listen to what they're telling you".

He has signed a four-year deal with Warrington Wolves from next season until November 2018.

Clark came through the scholarship and academy ranks at Castleford which is his home town club. He made his first-team debut in 2010, becoming a regular in the side the following year.

When I took on the head coach job last season the deal had already been done for Daryl to move to Warrington which secured the future of the club at that time. Whilst we obviously don't want to lose our best players this deal was in the best interests of the club. I have to say that Daryl has been an absolute pleasure to work with and it has been great to see him mature as a player and person this season.

– Daryl Powell, Castleford Tigers coach

I’ve really enjoyed my time here at Castleford Tigers. This is my home town club and I will always be a Cas fan. My proudest moment has been helping this team reach the Challenge Cup Final and I’ll continue to give my all to help Castleford Tigers reach the Super League Grand Final.

Urgent appeal for missing woman with autism

Police have issued an urgent appeal for help in finding a vulnerable missing woman.

20 year-old Lorna Smith was last seen at 1.15pm this afternoon, after she wandered away from the grounds of Toynton Hall, near Spilsby, where she attended college.

Lorna has severe learning difficulties and autism so there is great concern for her safety if she is walking on a public road.

Lorna is 5' 8" tall with long, curly, brown hair. She is wearing a long, grey speckled cardigan over a black dress and white, 3/4 length leggings.

Anyone who has seen Lorna, or who has any information that may help the search, is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police urgently on 101, or 999 in an emergency.
