Madison Broxton left her home in Chapel-en-le-Frith last Friday and hasn't been seen since.

Madison has straight, black, shoulder-length hair, blue eyes and is 5ft 3ins tall. She was last seen wearing a black Jack Wills hooded top, leggings and black trainers.

Madison has connections with Lancashire and it's thought she may have travelled there.

Anyone that may have seen her is asked to contact Derbyshire police on 101 or 0345 1233333 if calling from outside the county.

Residents in Derbyshire are set to see their council tax rise by almost 4% as the council looks to balance their budget.

Councillors agreed to the rise last night as one of several ways they're trying balance the books - along with making a further 34 million pounds worth of cuts.

£46
Increase in council tax per household

The increase in council tax works at around £46 pounds per year for the average household and would generate an additional £11 million. It comes as the authority needs to make savings of £80 million pounds over the next five years.

Four men have been arrested in connection with a series of raids in Derbyshire.

Police were called to shops in Spondon, Kirk Hallam and Ilkeston following a spate of robberies which they believe are connected.

The thieves, who wore balaclavas, threatened staff with a knife at a One Stop convenience store in Charlotte Street in Ilkeston on February 6.

Other burglaries were reported at the Diamond Spa massage parlour in Sandiacre and a residential address on Baker Avenue North.

Det. Insp Richard Burton said: “We are asking the public who may have been in the area of the crimes at the relevant times to help us with any information they can offer.

“The offenders wore masks or balaclavas which would have appeared out of place. If you have any information, no matter how small in relation to these incidents, I would urge you to get in touch."
