Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney will join fellow MPs today to take part in the annual Houses of Parliament pancake race, which will highlight the needs of people living with brain injury, mental health issues and a wide range of disabilities supported by Rehab's services.

The annual Rehab Parliamentary Pancake Race between teams of MPs, the Lords and the media will take place at 10am in Westminster's Victoria Tower Gardens.

Having won in 2012 and 2013, the MPs team will be going all out to claim victory and make it a three-in-a-row.

Protest picnic at beauty spot

A protest picnic has been held at a West Yorkshire beauty spot by a group of local residents who fear it's in danger of being spoilt. There are plans to reduce the water volume in Cupwith Reservoir, which is known locally in the Colne Valley as the "secret seaside".

The land owners say the plans are intended to make the reservoir safe and avoid flooding. Those opposed say it would reduce the reservoir to a muddy puddle.
