Unemployed people in Stoke-on-Trent who are over 50 will be able to seek business advice thanks to a new partnership between a pottery manufacturer and a charity set up by the Prince of Wales.

The Prince's Initiative For Mature Enterprise will host a free course to encourage older people in the city into business.

It will be held at the Tunstall headquarters of tableware firm Dudson, which has offered the charity free use of its Scotia Road offices.

Prince Charles will visit the Telford warehouse of a redistribution charity, In Kind Direct, which he founded in 1996. They receive donations of household essentials and then redistribute them to people in need.

He will visit Ludlow to see St. Laurence's church and officially kick start work on the town's Jubilee Gardens, and unveil a restored fountain at the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron.

A slice of toast believed to have been served to Prince Charles for his breakfast, the day he married Diana, is up for auction in Derby.

The slice was taken just hours before the Royal Wedding by Rosemarie Smith, from Derby, in 1981.

It's thought the piece of toast could fetch up to £500 when it goes under the hammer on July 19th.
