Police have urged a mother who has gone missing with her two sons to pick up the phone and let officers know they are safe.

Samantha Baldwin, 42, was last seen near Nottingham city centre on Monday. Officers are also concerned for the welfare of her children, nine-year-old Louis Madge and six-year-old Dylan Madge who are also missing. The two boys also use the surname of Taylor. It is believed the three are together.

The family, from Newark, are believed to have connections in Lincolnshire.

Samantha, all we ask is that you please pick up the phone and let us know you and the children are ok and that you are safe.

Overnight we have received thousands of messages of concern for you and the boys. Your loved ones are desperately worried and want to hear from you. They just want to know you and the boys are safe.

For now all we need is that phone call.

Watch: Lorry driver has lucky escape

A recycling company has released footage of the moment a lorry carrying hay bales overturned, causing delays for commuters during rush hour.

The video was shot from a dash cam fitted in one of Mid UK Recycling's vehicles, in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

Police were called to the slip road on the A17 to the A1 Northbound and were involved in the clean up.

The company said no one was injured in the incident. Posting the video on their Facebook page, the company said:

This is why our vehicles are fitted with forward facing cameras.
