Police enquiries are continuing into the recent sudden death of a 24-year-old man from High Bentham including the possibility that his death may be linked to the blue tablets. A man in his late teens from Bentham has been arrested on suspicion of supplying class A and B drugs.
Plans to start charging people for the collection of garden waste bins have been thrown out by Craven District Council. The authority was thinking of bringing in a £24 annual fee for the service, which is free at present.
The council hoped the charge would create savings of almost £150,000 a year. But at a full council meeting, the decision to charge homeowners was scrapped following mass objection.
The Conservatives have held Craven District Council despite losing two seats.
The Liberal Democrats and an Independent both gained one seat each.
How things stand now:
Conservative - 16
Independent - 10
Liberal Democrats - 4
