The famous Premier League Trophy will be at one of Leicestershire's most famous tourist attractions today - the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre.

Visitors can see the famous trophy between 1.30pm and 3.30pm in the centre's Heritage Room.

We're delighted to be able to offer our visitors the opportunity to see the FA Premier League trophy and share in Leicester City's success last season.

Both the Richard III story which we tell at Bosworth and the success of the football team attracted significant worldwide attention.

– Councillor Richard Blunt

Leicester City won the trophy in spectacular fashion last year - but sit just one point above the relegation zone this season.

Officers investigating a report of an assault in Market Street, Ashby, are trying to trace the driver of a silver taxi.

A man was taken to hospital with head injuries in the early hours of this morning (12 February) and is now in a critical condition.

A silver taxi was parked close to the fight – and Leicestershire Police say they are keen to speak to the driver as they may have information which could assist the investigation.

Three men, two aged 25 and one aged 28, have been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and are currently in custody.

An area of Market Street has been cordoned off while enquiries are carried out.

A project to install 70 thousand LED street lights across Leicestershire could save the council over one and a half million pounds a year.

The upgrade to existing lighting will also remove unnecessary lamps from street signs as well as illuminating crossings where appropriate.

It's expected that the county-wide project will be completed by the end of the year.
