Watch: As 'toddler-gate' hots up, we ask your opinion

It's only been open a few weeks, but the Tyme Coffee Lounge in Glossop has managed to make national headlines.

It follows a posting on its social media that mothers of small children who are having tantrums while in the cafe 'should take them outside till they can behave.'

There was angry reaction from some mums, but also a renewed debate about what parents should do when their youngsters, well, 'kick off.'

Retired engineer forced to hitch hike after bus cuts

A retired engineer says he's being forced to hitch hike to get to his local pub. Duncan Foster lives in Whittington near Lancaster and used to rely on the bus to meet friends in Kirby Lonsdale a few miles away. But timetable cuts mean the village now has just one bus a day, and residents say they feel 'totally abandoned.'


Accrington Stanley 'milk' advert is back!

The LFC fan who starred in the Ian Rush mild advert that made Accrington Stanley a household name has recreated it 27 years on - but this time he’s drinking vodka.

The 1980s milk advert saw the young Scouse lad - played by eight-year-old Carl Rice - saying he's drinking milk because Ian Rush drinks it.

He then goes on to say that if he doesn't drink enough milk he'll only be good enough to play for Accrington Stanley, to which his friend replies:

Accrington Stanley! Who are they?

– Mild advert

The recreated version is exactly the same except the now 36-year-old Carl Rice is drinking vodka.

See the original advert below.
