The last two Lancaster Bombers will fly together in formation over the Derwent Dam for the first time in 50 years.

A host of volunteers are joining forces with Severn Trent, Peak Park and Derbyshire County Council workers to help make the special event possible at 4.45pm before one flies back to Canada next week.

The British Lancaster will be joined by its Canadian counterpart, Vera, which has flown across the 'Pond' for a series of summer events.

It has been a milestone in BBMF’s history to fly with V-RA in the UK. To carry out a flypast over the Derwent Dam will be a fitting finale before the Canadians make their long trip home next week.

Used to train for the famous Dambusters Raid by 617 Squadron in 1943, the dam is part of our nation’s history. To carry out this flypast will be a significant part of the RAF’s and the BBMF’s heritage.

A breath test revealed 40-year-old Marcella Restrick had 134 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

The court heard how she had began drinking on a trip to scatter flowers in memory of her late partner, who died after apparently suffering an epileptic fit.

The crash happened in Fylingthorpe in August.

Restrick, from Lime Tree Avenue, admitted drink driving. Magistrate Victoria Shepherd stood the case down for a probation report, saying she was considering jail because of the very high alcohol reading. Restrick was banned from driving for 32 months, and ordered to pay £85 court costs with a £65 surcharge.

A murder and an armed robbery that happened minutes apart on the same street are not believed to be linked.

Police officers were called to an armed robbery at the One Stop shop on Charlotte Street in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, at about 5.30am yesterday. Ten minutes later, officers found a man who had been stabbed to death, and another man with serious injuries in a nearby house.

A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder.

"Although both of these incidents were reported at around the same time and in the same street, we do not believe they are linked in any way.

“Individual investigations are now being carried out into the two incidents and I would urge anyone with information to call us.”
