The 133rd Nottinghamshire County show takes place this weekend.

Organisers hope it’ll be the biggest one yet celebrating the best of Nottinghamshire, from best produce and trade to livestock including the popular Sheep Show.

The show offers a variety of things to see and do including a music marquee, extreme sports, cookery demonstrations, a field gun display and urban free runners.

“There really will be something for everyone- it’s the first year we have secured the free runners which is high octane entertainment, we’re working on a new treasure trail for the children and many eclectic music performances to entertain the crowds.”

Calls for action over man arrested after fighting IS

Supporters of a man who left Britain to go and fight the so-called Islamic State, are calling for all criminal proceedings against him to be dropped.

Aiden Aslin, from Newark in Nottinghamshire, flew out to Syria last year to go and fight alongside Kurdish forces.

He was arrested when he returned to the UK last month.

Today campaigners held a demonstration, demanding he face no further action.
